Sample: rehearsal: original composition copyright ©2013 Marco Fernández Carrascosa; ambient sound recorded after dark in Emilio’s garden, Lajares, July 20th 2013: “Calima”: (Lajares Jazz):
Beyond Marco himself, the Tri-Fin trio is the basic formation that powers much of the music he is producing right now. Consisting of Emilio’s percussion, Jean-Philippe’s bass guitar and Marco playing amplified acoustic guitar through a loopstation, Tri-Fin can often be heard playing live at various locations on the island, and when accompanied by vocalist Marina the band becomes the Amusik quartet. Tri-Fin and Amusik often form the nucleus of the Canela Jam Band, but with Marco playing wind and brass alongside others’ guitars. Tri-Fin, Amusik and the various incarnations of the Canela Jam Band (every Wednesday evening at the Canela Café in Lajares) operate as the musical workshop platform out of which, we think you will agree, some nice music is emerging.
