Mexico
Jazz
Troker can be considered one of the most important exporters of new music in Mexico, “One of the twenty Mexican artists breaking boundaries”: Rolling Stone Mexico. Brewed in the land of tequila, the sextet has created a mix of instrumental sounds that come from jazz, funk, progressive rock and the popular tradition of mariachi, all this collided by a turntable that throws scratches as fresh whiffs into this peculiar mix.
The band’s proposal is at times sublime and at other dangerous, it is “noisy, chaotic, sprawling, messy, all together is wonderful”: All About Jazz. Far from jazz for elevators, Troker manages to travel in complete freedom between the complex and the precise, creating “immediately infectious tunes and energetic live show”: The Huffington Post.
From its conception, Troker was a project to do things differently, something like a laboratory of crazy ideas. They started as a band of small clubs in Guadalajara and learned how to get standing ovations. Today, they make records and offer concerts that are experiences capable of awakening not only the senses, but also the emotions. “Saying Troker is a jazz band from Mexico doesn’t even begin to cover the musical punch these guys deliver”: NPR; A powerful expression of contemporary Mexico.
They have visited 17 countries and are the only Mexican band that has performed at the Glastonbury Festival, the Vive Latino and the Montreal Jazz Festival, just to mention the least.
