The music of Trio Populaire is essentially synonymous with miscegenation. It transcends boundaries by drawing on the Mediterranean sounds. Europe, North Africa and Middle East mingle in an original repertoire blending klezmer melodies, Berber rhythms and flamenco. The group was formed in 2010, since then the three musicians improvise on rhythms that lets our imagination drift towards the former spice trade route. Guitar, clarinet and percussion come together around a common vision: to produce cosmopolitan melodies that inspires. Tacfarinas Kichou’s percussions “the derbouki player with golden fingers” strongly invokes the hot nights of the East, a dynamic that Pierre-Emmanuel Poizat’s clarinet and Joey Mallat guitar complete with finesse and poetry. The melodies embroidered by the three men evolve in an amazing continental drift.
