original songs, fantasy-psychedelic improvisations and zany forays!
The TdF have been collaborating since 1999, discovering and studying music and sounds belonging to different cultures.
Starting from the common passion for traditional Irish music (THAR BARR, THE WELL OF SAN PATRIZIO), the trio’s curiosity touches the music of Central and Eastern Europe
(numerous concerts within the collective “LA MESCLA” in Bosnia-Croatia-Kosovo-Romania-Hungary, France and Spain), Roma music, Manouche swing and, recently, the Brazilian Choro, a meeting point between early twentieth century European music and Brazilian rhythms.
The crazy creativity of the trio feeds on these languages to give life to numerous original songs.
