Band Bariton Trio relies on melodic and colour playing and improvising. The baritone guitar, the band’s signature, contributes to this musical direction due to its special sonicity that seeks more to shape melodies than to construct abstract sound lines.
The music created by the Bariton Trio, then, becomes a sound magnet for listeners of various music genres. Alongside Ivan Kapec’s original pieces, the trio also performs Pink Floyd, Nick Cave and Kurt Weil’s hits.
