The versatility of their sound as a trio and the diverse musical backgrounds of it’s three members, has made Trip Trip Trip the focus of attention of several Colombian contemporary composers, who have written a number of pieces specially for them. No wonder their concerts and next album, which is their 3rd production: “Como quien oye llover”, present a wide selection of sounds that range from the dreamy atmosphere of Alejandro Zuluaga’s pieces (“Pájaros” and “Amanece”), to the evocation of Colombian traditional music present in the oeuvre of Andres Samper; passing by the mystical, yet vigorously rhythmic nature of Damian Ponce´s music, and concluding with the endless surprises provided by the compositions of Cesar Quevedo and Camilo Giraldo, who are also members(performers) and arrangers at Trip Trip Trip.
Their discography, which includes two albums released in 2012 (Trip, trip, trip) and 2014 (…que cosa tan seria), has raised the interest of various governmental institutions devoted to culture. These institutions –which include the Orquesta Filarmónica de Bogotá, Banco de la República, Teatro Nacional and Biblored- have awarded the trio in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 with cycles of concerts and the participation in the 7th Guitar week, organized by El Banco de la República, where they had the opportunity to play in seven Colombian cities and share the stage with the European Guitar Quartet, Judicael Perroy & Marc Ribot.
In 2016 they were invited to the “Research and Music Festival” at Fontys, Tilburg (NL).
Trip Trip Trip’s started working in 2008. Their chamber music is charged with tango, flamenco, cumbia, jazz and rock grooves. The tensile strength of the trio’s recordings and live performances is borne from their ability to meld individual styles into a single, indivisible alloy. Few chamber groups do this, and Trip Trip Trip, is positioned at the crossroads of Latin and South American music traditions.
The inspiration for their name, came from a fantastic character (a fantastic talking cat called Pink Tomate), from the novel “Opium in the Clouds” by Colombian writer Rafael Chaparro Madiedo.
