Trio Mopmu

“With all the pizzazz, agility and vitality of a Bulgarian wedding band, yet complementing it with careful sensitivity and finesse, Trio Mopmu always brings conviction and superb artistry to the table. This twelve-track gem, “Torta Bulgarska,” weaves and waltzes through jazz and folk idioms, always holding onto its own identity and yet with the open-minded freedom to change that definition at will. There is a solid presence of musicianship and artistic command whether it be a slow, haunting number or one that strictly calls out for a dance floor. Brilliance abounds.” – CDBaby

Trio Mopmu is Ryan Francesconi on tabura, Bill Lanphir on electric bass and Bryan Bowman on drums.

Trio Mopmu also features the exquisite voice of Lily Storm, an American singer specializing in traditional world music who combines centuries-old vocal technique with an atmospheric, modern aesthetic.
