Pablo Lapidusas International Trio (P.L.I.N.T) is the first project beyond the solo format of the Argentinian pianist Pablo Lapidusas. The trio formed in 2014 in collaboration with the Cuban bassist Leo Espinosa and the Portuguese/Brazilian drummer Marcelo Araújo, recorded the same year a live CD in the prestigious club The Orbit (South Africa): ‘Live in Johannesburg – Ekaya’
The trio project also earned a nomination for Jazzahead 2016 (Germany) as one of 16 projects representing European instrumental music, performing a showcase and getting excellent reviews. In the same year, the trio began to prepare new material for the recording of the second album, to be released in 2017/2018, as well as tours in Brazil, South Korea, Germany, Mozambique, India, South Africa and Portugal (country where the 3 musicians are currently living) .
Besides the performances, the trio have an intense pedagogical activity, ministering workshops and masterclasses through Brazil, Portugal, India, Israel and Argentina.
“He was amazed by the total silence (you could hear a pin drop) during his solo performance, but perhaps no more than the audience, by his amazing technique, impressive changes of tempo, delicate contrasts of light and shade, an rhythmically solid left hand.”
Gwen Ansell (Business Day)
