Christian Bakanic’s Trio Infernal – Kilombo

Starting out as the rhythm section of the band Beefólk, the time eventually came for the ardent musicians of Chrstian Bakanic’s Trio Infernal to break new ground.

A well-attuned working band, they torch popular clichés ablaze, for Christian Bakanic, Christian Wendt, and Jörg Haberl have little in common with a classical accordion trio. They act as ambassadors between the soundscapes of jazz, tango, and modern grooves from the club scene, like house and drum’n’bass, where they seek to find common ground rather than cross borders between the styles.

These three three top-class musicians present a vibrantly vivid sound experience that overcomes accustomed styles and abolishes borders – music that is full of freedom, passion, virtuosity, and imagination.

Christian Bakanic: Akkordeon, Keyboard, Percussion
Christian Wendt: Bass
Jörg Haberl: Drums

Christian Bakanic, an Austrian accordionist and composer, studied folk music at the Johann Joseph Fux conservatory in Graz, classical accordion at Graz University of Arts and has already made his mark as a jazz musician in Austria. His musical approaches and experiences blend subtly in his compositions and combine the complex spontaneity of jazz, the temperamental passion of Tango Nuevo, and the disciplined momentum of European classicism with multifaceted traditions of European folk music.

The essence of Christian Bakanic’s work is the steady motion, the continuous exchange, and not least the exciting search for new potentials. Curiosity and passion fuel his creative engine, whilst he convinces an audience with authenticity and virtuosity.
