Already since the end of the 90s the Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger has been performing with the musician and singer Mola Sylla, who comes from Senegal. Together with pianist Harmen Fraanje, the Trio Reijseger – Fraanje – Sylla has stood for “the perfect amalgam of jazz, African songs and classical music” since 2007 (North Sea Jazz Festivals, Rotterdam, Netherlands). The trio makes fierce and beautiful music that is also melancholy and always heavily supported by the excellent voice of their African singer. The exuberant, improvised piano playing of Fraanje and the subtle melodies of Reijseger make for an eclectic, sometimes spiritual whole where nothing is what is seems. The Trio Reijseger – Fraanje – Sylla has released two albums for winter and winter and recorded music for several films by the renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog.
