about

The music of Reijseger Fraanje Sylla has been described as ‘the perfect amalgam of jazz, African songs and classical music’.(1)
The trio has released two albums for Winter and Winter and made the music for several films by well known filmmaker Werner Herzog.
 ‘Cellist Ernst Reijseger, pianist Harmen Fraanje and Senegalese singer-percussionist Mola Sylla are able to create their own language on stage like no one else; and although it might not be directly understood, it can be felt very clearly’.(2)

The trio makes fierce and beautiful music that is also melancholy and always heavily supported by the excellent voice of their African singer.
The exuberant, improvised piano playing of Fraanje and the subtle melodies of Reijseger make for an eclectic, sometimes spiritual whole where nothing is what is seems.”
