Top-quality chamber music crossover: passionate tango, classical music con brio, uplifting Balkan Swing and Vaudeville interludes make their way in a most harmonious manner. What is characteristic of that group is that essential parts of their program are multi-faceted original compositions that are sophistically adapted by the trio. The original line-up with a violinist, an accordionist and a double-bass player, enhances both the trio’s folk roots and their classical and romantic liking. The cajón and the mandola’s vibrations enable them to extend their repertoire to jazz and world music. Their charm and humour seduce and surprise their audience always anew. So folksmilch turn Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” into a tango à la Astor Piazzolla, or Mozart’s “Alla Turca” piano sonata into Balkan swing music, and EAV’s Austro pop song “Palermo” into an outlandish operetta.

The group gives concerts exclusively.
