“Mudita” means unselfish joy; it is feeling joy for the happiness and success of others.
In this unconventional trio lineup, three young musicians from different musical backgrounds come together to create a single sound. Singer Sanne Rambags, pianist Sjoerd van Eijck and trumpeter Koen Smits explore the limits of their instrument. Their warm sounds and melancholy improvisations strike a chord with a wide audience and the group is able to create a distinctive atmosphere. A minimalist playing style and free compositions mean that no concert is the same – apart from one thing: every performance has magic in it.
Mudita’s debut album Listen To The Sound Of The Forest is released in May 2018 on the Dutch label ZenneZ Records.
