This percussion trio is the result of an exceptionally productive encounter of three percussionists at the Conservatory of Brussels. Each one has already won his spurs as a freelance musician with various ensembles such as the National Orchestra of Belgium, the Flemish Radio Orchestra, the Spectra Ensemble, Oxalys, Champ d’Action… While Frank Van Eycken focused on Cuban and Brazilian music, Dimitri Dumon made the vibraphone and the marimba his specialty. Bjorn Denys, on the other hand, often shares the stage with DJ’s. The trio plays wide-ranging concerts circling around different musical styles, ranging from ethnic to contemporary, from all continents, and therefore also taking advantage of unusual percussion instruments. They tend to choose the kind of music that emphasizes choreography and architecture, an affinity that resulted in many invitations for the theatre and for music theatre. Triatu also devote an important part of their repertoire to Belgian composers.
