The current so-called „immediate composition“ is the basis of this “ZÍNGARO” | PARRINHA | MITZLAFF 3io. It will be from this initial premise that the group develops its musical discourse, creating diverse expressive sound spaces that, although not directly referring to specific languages, will not be alien to the paths and influences of each element of this formation.

In this sense, the existence of an intense and diverse musical interaction will be predictable in this trio’s presentation. From “free jazz” to so many other approaches to the music of our days, including forms of contemporary music in its most random aspect.
