Trio Maag was born out of a fascination with Argentinian Tango. Over the past six years they have evolved to compose and perform original music, however, the tango “code” can still be perceived in the group’s genome. The repertoire of the Magi could be described as folkish jazz, tinged with Latin American influences. The trio's original full-bodied sound rests on a blend of Kaspar Uljas’ bandoneon, Marek Talts’ guitar and Mingo Rajandi's double bass, enriched with accentuated rhythms and passionate interplay. The trio also performs pieces by contemporary Argentinian composers, yet always casting them into the light of the trio's specific spectre. The musical ingredients originating from far shores of the oceans are never cooked by the book, always approached rather creatively and through improvisation. In 2020, Trio Maag was joined by a versatile as well as magical Spanish singer Isabel Bermejo, who's sheer expressiveness captures everyone lucky enough to attend her performances.
