Elifantree, formed in 2007, is an experimental electro-acoustic trio built on vocals, saxophone, and drums, and it expands its sound world by adding various instruments to it. Elifantree’s music has been compared to the works of Pablo Picasso, Charles Chaplin and David Lynch, to the horn of plenty, a mystic forest, and many others but above all the core is in the vision of three artists what music can be. The trademarks of the trio are elastic grooves, virtuoso improvisations, and wild stage energy.
Elifantree has actively performed around the world for over ten year and published five albums praised by critics. Their forth-coming sixth album will be released in early 2021, and it will feature eight top drummers from around the world. The first single “Finland: Black Sheep” of the forth-coming sixth album was released in spring 2020, and the second single “Sweden:Gold Dust” will be released on October 2nd.
