Boz Trio is an ensemble of five musicians specializing in the repertoire of traditional Yiddish and Eastern European music. It was born in December 2011 as a group made up of three people from different musical backgrounds with a great passion for popular music in common; over the years of activity, the starting trio has assimilated other components up to the current team that since 2016 has brought its own musical message with a decisive charisma. Since the beginning, the spirit of the group has been to maintain a strong heterogeneity, in order to musically recreate different musical traditions that have always been connected: Klezmer, Gypsy, Balkan and Greek music find themselves living together as in a multi-ethnic neighborhood of a big city , giving life to a lively and colorful cosmos. The concerts of the Boz Trio find space in the most disparate contexts: the exuberant and hyperbolic character of popular music animates a suitable show to different realities: from the big stages of a summer festival, to the stage of a theater, to farmhouses and historic houses without forgetting the streets of all of Europe on busking tours.
