A piano, a drum set, a thousand ideas. The happy and highly creative encounter of pianist- composer Marianne Trudel, a pivotal figure on the Montreal music scene, with John Hollenbeck, the multi-award-winning drummer, composer, and influential musical thinker who has been on the faculty of McGill University’s Schulich School of Music since 2015. Their duo, Dédé Java Espiritu plunges the listener into an infinite panorama of colours, rhythm, beauty, mystery, trance and poetry. Marianne Trudel offers a whole new cycle of compositions that are pared down and refined, mysterious and enticing as catchy grooves, enchanting melodies, surprising sonorities, and joyous spontaneity go hand in hand.Marianne Trudel (p), John Hollenbeck (dr)
