Shalosh make songs without words. Emotion is more important than intellect. Their intensely insistent music does not pose any thought problems, is catchy, powerful and yet filigree. Unbridled joy in playing creates a tension that gets into your legs, twists and turns catchy melodies and keeps increasing them. In this way, a sound is created in ingenious stop & go that you like to let yourself be captured by. It sounds like the future and tradition at the same time.

Piano, bass, drums. Three instruments, three young musicians.An Israeli band that has a passion for Nirvana, Brahms, and The Bad Plus. They blend different styles with furious passion: the volume of rock and the danceability of electronic music meet the sensitivity of trained jazz musicians. The name of the band is "SHALOSH," which is Hebrew for "Three." "The three musicians almost explode with joy in playing. Their extroverted interpretation of the compositional material is overwhelming. Their melodic shifts, their variations in time (multiple times within one piece), their improvisational sparks push the boundaries of jazz immensely.Rock references, Eastern and African ideas, even electronic extensions merge with classical virtuosity and energetic jazz." – JAZZ FIRST | JÖRG KONRAD
