The ethno jazz trio formed by Khoshaba, Palmitessa and Jazouli produces an ethnically inspired work that is linked to Iraqi and Iranian culture. The virtuosity of Khoshaba's oud, the lyricism of the saxophone and the meditative percussion of Jazouli lead the listener into a solar North African dimension.
The compositions written by Khoshaba and Palmitessa offer harmonies and melodies that are not complex but very effective in the trio context.
