The musicians of the international
Trio Moyoni (IRE, GER, USA/TAN)
met in 2015 at the renowned
Sibelius Academy, Helsinki.
Despite contrasting backgrounds, they connected through music and began sharing and creating it together, bringing folk, jazz and
world music together using their voices and the sounds of cello,
guitar and saxophone.
Drawing on these cultural backgrounds & influences forms their lyrical sound that resonates around the world; each musician is a 'collector' of songs yet also composes original material. You will hear exciting rhythms and songs from Tanzania, Brazilian temperament but also sweet Irish harp music and tones from jazz; all elements that mold the heartfelt music of Trio 'Moyoni' - which translates to 'from their hearts' in Swahili (Tanzania).
Based in Ireland, Helsinki and Berlin, and with two tours under their belts in 2016 (Finland & Germany) and two more coming, Trio Moyoni's stock will continue to rise in 2017.
