The music of HYPNAGOGIA trio is a groovy fusion of classical bass clarinet, soulful jazz trumpet, and the traditional mbira from South Africa. They blend these elements to create a fresh, new sound that’s both earthy and ethereal. The trio, made up of Marie Tjong-Ayong, Joe Weinberg, and Lutz Streun (all hailing from South Africa), draws inspiration from a variety of styles – from the popular Mbira beats of Africa to the mystical Maqam tonalities of the Middle East, and everything in between. They infuse club beats and classical chamber music to create an innovative and pulsating sound that’s unique to their vibrant hometown of Berlin. Their compositions take you on a journey through forgotten dreamscapes, making you want to dance, daydream, and get lost in their groovy melodies.
