New York based PARADOX TRIO is a quartet that creates original music inspired by Eastern European traditions driven by an improvisational downtown edge . With their five previous releases on Knitting Factory, ENJA and now the Italian FELMAY labels, Paradox Trio has been influential in advancing world fusion with their innovative exploration of balkan, gypsy, middle eastern and klezmer music forms! Certainly, Darriau and the band were in the first wave of artists to introduce these melodies, modes, and rhythms into the NY downtown mix. For the past 17 years these four musicians have been notorious for their high-energy concerts throughout North America, Canada and Europe. The group's dynamic performances and approach cut across stylistic and geographic boundaries creating an unusual and eclectic sound - redefining the concept "world beat".
