Trio Ligro on Jazz Buzz Salihara 2018Trio Ligro Went Wild and Untamed on Jazz Buzz Salihara 2018

JAKARTA (02/17) – Trio Ligro are just like that fancy cuisine that simply not anyone can enjoy. Their music is intricate, not a simple traditional jazz music that will persuade the listeners or viewers to sit back and relax. During their performance as the opener of Jazz Buzz Salihara 2018: Jazz Sans Frontiéres 03, they truly showed their colors and they were not holding anything back. The trio performed several progressive rock jazz numbers from their latest release “Transisi”. It was a combination between noise music, rock, jazz which is wrapped in the most chaotic and brutal way. There is simply no way in between with this group, it’s either you like it or you don’t. Formed in 2004, Trio Ligro stay true with their original formation comprising of Agam Hamzah (guitar), Adi Darmawan (bass), and Gusti Hendy (drum). If you wonder why their music is rather absurd, you should know that each of them has different musical background. Agam is an expert in jazz blues and rock; Adi studies about classic music, dangdut and jazz; while Hendy is known for his metal, rock and blues roots.

Trio Ligro on Jazz Buzz Salihara 2018Before releasing “Transisi” this year, the trio have released three albums called “Dictionary I” (2008), “Dictionary II” (2012), and “Dictionary III” (2015). Their albums were released and distributed via Moonjune Records in New York, and Demajors Records in Indonesia. Having had a long journey as a band and a seasoned jazz performer, Trio Ligro once again showed their class and successfully opened Jazz Buzz Salihara 2018. They performed 8 songs in total on 17 February 2018. As a closing number, they performed a track called “The 20th Century Collaseu”. The song is special for the band, as it was inspired by the works of 20th century composers like Anton Webern and Oliver Messien. If you won’t believe us, you could watch their performance below!
