Reijseger Fraanje Sylla
The trio Reijseger Fraanje Sylla consists of: Ernst Reijseger (cello), Harmen Fraanje (piano) and Mola Sylla (vocals, traditional African instruments). Ernst Reijseger is a great master of the cello, Bach combines variations with bass chords to Mingus style and even incorporates African-style percussion. The other two components of the trio are equally unique and inimitable, without musical prejudice: the pianist Harmen Fraanje creates imaginative melodies on a crossroads between classical music and jazz, and the Senegalese musician Mola Sylla reinterprets their own cultural traditions with a powerful voice and a selection of traditional African instruments. The musical result is a powerfully original mix that transcends musical genres.
