Troker

 

“Immediately infectious tunes and an energetic live show.“ – The Huffington Post

“Jazz is an American art form and the Mexican band Troker is an example of how the idea of America extends past the U.S. border. It’s all in how they interpret jazz. In their hands, there are concrete references to the jazz traditions as we know them but also elements like electronics, Mexican folklore, pop, rock, even hip-hop. The result is intoxicating, a sound both familiar and new.” – Felix Contreras, NPR, 10/3/17

Hailing from Guadalajara and renowned for their explosive onstage energy, Troker is a hard-groove sextet that blends jazz, rock, funk and hip hop with a uniquely Mexican attitude. Brewed in the land of Tequila and toured across the world, Troker’s music is a powerful expression of contemporary Mexico.

Personnel: Diego Franco Chico: saxophones; Samo González: bass, contrabass; Christian Jiménez: piano; Isaias Flores: trumpet; Frankie Mares: drums; Leonel “DJ Sonickoo” Nájera: turntables.
