Guitarist Mike Walker is one of the most proliﬁc British musicians of his generation with his talent widely acknowledged among notable international Jazz peers. Mike has built a distinguished performing, composing and teaching career in the UK and Europe spanning almost forty years, featuring international touring and many highly recognised collaborations.
Tria Lingvo are winners of the 2014 New German Jazzprize, offer an innovative and highly creative approach to the traditional trio format, at home with exploring the endlessly fascinating ground found between Modern Jazz, energy-laden improvisation and ethnic music. After four highly successful albums they are one of the well established ensembles on the German scene. Over the years they have given many concerts all over Germany ranging from clubs, to concerthalls, churches, to some famous festivals like “Leverkusener Jazztage”, “Enjoy Jazz” and “Vive le Jazz”.
The musical credo is best reflected by the bands name “Tria Lingvo” which is Esperanto and stands for “third language”. The basic idea behind is combining aspects of modern jazz with elements of ethnic music to a language of its own.
