Turkish, Middle Eastern, Macedonian and Armenian music
The Secret Trio performs original pieces and traditional melodies that fuse the microtonal modes and improvisation of the Middle East, dance beats of the Balkans, and elements of jazz, rock, classical and world music. The delicate harmonies, driving rhythms, rapid fire synchrony and intricate counterpoint developed by these musicians -- with separate roots in Turkish, Armenian and Macedonian Roma music -- are extraordinary.
