EYM Trio orchestrates the perfect balance between unconventional rhythms and melodious harmony in their music. Playfulness and sensitivity characterize the subtle, yet exciting sound in their compositions.
Formed in France in 2010, EYM Trio is the union of the pianist Elie Dufour, the double bassist Yann Phayphet and drummer Marc Michel. In a short time, they created a strong repertoire including personal compositions, covers and creations inspired by ethnic influences of Jazz with colors from North Africa, Bulgaria, Romania, and India.
In character and creation, EYM Trio imbibes the rhythmic influences of Jazz masters throughout history; the genius of the historic jazz figures deeply inspires them. There is great intentional diversity in their compositions and improvisations, thus making their music aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
