Macats/ Hasselberg/ Mofjell
Rūdolfs Macats

This trio is a mix of Portuguese romance, Scandinavian cold winds and Latvian melancholy. Macats is well known as one of Latvia's most creative and contemporary pianists. Hasselberg, coming from Portugal, brings in his extremely focused and harmonic approach to bass. Norwegian, Mofjell’s drumming style is divided between electronic minimalism and acoustical extremities.

Macats has been educated at the great conservatories of Amsterdam, Oslo and Copenhagen. He has released quite a few albums. The freshest one being-
“Volume I”.

Hasselberg has been exploring new sounds and also has toured with some of the most important musicians from his country in addition to collaborating with a number of musicians in his own projects.

Mofjell's style is described as expressive and powerful, working with quick changes and larger circular forms together as one. He has been giving spectacular concerts all around Europe.
