In collaboration with the Instituto Francés of Madrid and with the support of the Romanian Embassy and the Romanian Consulate General in Seville, the Instituto Cultural Rumano is organising the jazz concerts Drive, by Timișoara’s trio JazzyBIT, tomorrow Friday in Madrid and Saturday, March 4th, in Malaga, whose tickets have already sold out in a few days.
The concerts will take place at the Theatre of the French Institute in Madrid and at the Interactive Museum of Music in Malaga, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Romania’s accession to the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF). These events will present to jazz lovers in Spain the creativity and talent of Romanian musicians, recognised and appreciated in Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023.
The group JazzyBIT is a trio consisting of Teodor Pop (piano, keyboards), Mihai Moldoveanu (bass) and Szabó Csongor-Zsolt (drums), performing since 2012 and offering an energetic combination of jazz and rock, infused with blues, Latin and funk. The group describes their style as “noisy jazz”.
In 2014, the trio released their first album, Touch the Sky, followed by the album Horizon in 2016. In 2021 JazzyBIT released their third album, Drive, an album mixed in New York City at The Bunker Studio and featuring eight original JazzyBIT compositions.
