Popular by its instrumentation and the evidence of its melodies - sophisticated by what is done to it and by what it does to sounds and the words. The trio largely takes in consideration the different kinds of music which have influenced each of those three women: improvisation, folk music, jazz, tango, contemporary vocal .... A music that diverts the meaning of sentences and thrills over words.
