The MusicSouth American and Eastern European music on Dutch soil seems an unlikely combination, but the musical interests of the players, together with the unique composition of the trio, led to this particular mixture. Geographical distances between different parts of the world play no role, and gaps are easily bridged musically: for Latino's and Gipsies alike, playing music and dancing are interwoven with daily life. Not just weddings and seasonal festivities, but funerals, poverty, and the pangs of love, too, are abundantly sung of and celebrated. Danceability and melancholy, and the alternation of lust for life and being moved are binding factors.
Having come of age in the Netherlands, the Charivari Trio has been receiving these musical treasures freely for years. In turn, the trio now plays her part in the age-old tradition of blending styles.
