Triótro (The OTHER Trio) makes their debut performance in the Polyphonia 2020 concert! The trio is conceived and led by percussionist/educator John Santos whose 50-year highly visible presence in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene is recognized and respected internationally. This outside-the-box collaboration is rounded out by the incredibly versatile Bay Area first-call drummer, David Flores, and Bay Area newcomer Christelle Durandy whose remarkable skills as a multi-lingual vocalist/percussionist have rapidly made her a favorite across multiple musical genres and styles. The result is uplifting, surprising, ancestral, improvisational, modern and unpredictable.
