Erik Truffaz

INFO
Jazz Concert

French-Swiss trumpet virtuoso Erik Truffaz entered the world of professional music early - his father was a saxophonist and, before reaching the age of ten, his childhood was spent in a dance music orchestra. As he studied at the Geneva Conservatoire, his musical horizons expanded from such authorities as Miles Davis to Mozart and Giuseppe Verdi. For some time he performed with the Swiss Symphonic Orchestra (l'Orchestre de Suisse Romande), later followed by performing with his band "Orange". Truffaz has participated regularly in the prestigious Montreux

Jazz Festival and toured extensively across Europe, Russia and Central America.

When listening to Truffaz, you feel his philosophy to break boundaries, injecting jazz into vibrant drum n bass and hip-hop sounds. Erik Truffaz is today one of the leading and most innovative trumpet players in the world with more than ten albums for Blue Note Records.

He is joined on stage by French gentleman-vagabond SIG (jazz cellist & pianist, film director, photographer) and the phenomenal Artis Orubs on drums. The trio will perform their piece “Elegia Session“, combining improvisational jazz, syncopated percussions, distorted synths, loops and effects over Erik Truffaz’ magical trumpet.
