JAPA

Japa is a Sanskrit word used to mean the repetition of a frequency, the echoing of a repetitive sound, its propagation and evolution. The sound of the band, which interprets modern and sometimes mainstream jazz works as trios in its repertoire and, also includes its own compositions, evolves with organic and electronic elements.
