Languages, Languages, Languages,.. something we used to hear from our teachers at school. The young Trio Tribal Dialects speaks different musical languages and dialects in a twilight zone between minimal and ethnic music.
The Trio with its unusual lineup founded by the eloquent Austrian reed player Patrick Dunst has already established itself with its first release Home in 2014.
In 2016 the lineup has slightly changed moving its focus towards percussion, adding Leo Waltersdorfer on vibraphone and marimba.
Patrick Dunst: saxes, bassclarinet, duduk
Grilli Pollheimer: percussion, electronics
Leo Waltersdorfer: vibraphone, marimba
total playing time: 47:56 minutes
released 2018 on the label “Session Work Records”
Steirische Harmonika meets vibraphone – Quetsch ‘n’ Vibes combines two opposing musical worlds. In this duo the Austrian folk music fuses with the jazzy sound of the vibraphone. Out of this combination rises a river full of new sounds and colours.
But Johannes Kölbl and Leonhard Waltersdorfer do not just play Steirische Harmonika and vibraphone on their CD. With more than 25 different instruments (from handpan to bass-ukulele) the two musicians exploit their full creative potential and create new combinations of many different sounds.
