Trio Katastrofa (SE, SI, CL)

Trio Katastrofa can not really be defined by one genre as they are constantly finding new material inspired by places and meetings with people and cultures. A large focus is on the traditional music they learned during their travels, tours, courses and different kinds of creative contexts and projects in different parts of European corners. The trio has come up with their own genre they call Scandi-Balkan folk-punk which consists of both traditional music from Scandinavia and the Balkans and their own compositions, mixed with improvisation and a large portion of humor as well as breathtakingly fast improvisation and communication skills between the members - a genre in constant transformation. The band consists of the Slovenian world traveling puppeteer and accordion virtuoso Matija Solce, the Swedish/Chilean multi genre fireman percussionist Stefan Hedborg on drums and Sofia Högstadius, Swedish violinist from the north who fell deeply in love with Bulgarian folk music.
