Andreas Kapsalis Trio

Andreas Kapsalis Trio

The Andreas Kapsalis Trio represents the perfect alliance of eight-fingered guitar virtuosity,
outstanding melodic themes, and rhythmic variation on percussion. Backed by drummer Jamie
Gallagher and multi-instrumentalist Darren Garvey, the Andreas Kapsalsis Trio’s second album
Original Scores is now available.

Original Scores is the Andreas Kapsalis Trio’s follow up to 2004’s self-titled debut. The years between
have found the trio touring the country and composing music for film. Andreas was awarded a
Fellowship Grant to attend the Sundance Film Composers Lab in 2005 and chosen to compose the
film score for the documentary Black Gold which premiered at Sundance in 2006. Other films
include Mulberry Street, Mexican Sunrise, and Retaliation.

The film connection has had an obvious influence on the writing of Original Scores. The music
morphs from resembling your favorite movie soundtrack to a freak circus to full out thrash to
subtle ballads. Elements of Americana, flamenco, Greek, African, and Arabic music are part of the
mix, each receiving equal time. The musicianship and instrumentation make this a must-see live
performance. Now in its sixth year, the Andreas Kapsalis Trio has become a force in Chicago’s
underground music scene.
