From the distant Mexico comes, at its first appearance in Italy, a band that is a candidate to be remembered as one of the most beautiful surprises of Fano Jazz By The Sea 2015. The Trokers are in six and were formed in 2003, making their bones on small stages of the bars of Guadalajara: since then they have gradually made a name around the world (in 2013 they participated in the Glastonbury Music Festival) thanks to a personal mix of jazz (from Swing to free), rock, funk and more energetic elements of the Mexican wet tradition of Tequila. The mixture between keyboards, woodwinds, a rhythmic rhythm section, as well as the sound devilries produced by a DJ, make the sound of the group something truly unique. Live the Trokers are spectacular, explosive, overwhelming. This year it’s up to them to get on the stage set up in the trees of the Golena del Furlo: their concert will surely be a great music festival!
