The French trio EYM forms the perfect balance between terrific rhythms and beautiful harmomies.
Having met in 2010, Elie Dufour (p.), Yann Phayphet (b.) and Marc Michel (dms.) have quicly gained a reputation for their playful and sensitive style.
Their personal compositions are inspired by ethnic influences of Jazz with colors from North Africa, Bulgaria, Romania, and India.
In character and creation, EYM Trio imbibes the rhythmic influences of Jazz masters throughout history; the genius of the historic jazz figures deeply inspires them.
There is great intentional diversity in their compositions and improvisations, thus making their music aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
With many awards (“Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-près” (Paris), “La défense” national jazz competition (Paris), “Getxo jazz international contest” (Spain)...)
and more than 300 concerts in Europe and Asia (Tokyo Jazz Festival, Jarasum Jazz Festival, Taichung Jazz Festival...) they are achieving a wonderful international carrier.
Yet this is their first performance in USA !
