Troker / Bio

ROUGH JAZZ, MUSIC DISTINGUISHED BY ITS EXPLOSIVE ENERGY, A TRUE FUSION OF GENRES -JAZZ, ROCK, FUNK AND HIP-HOP- WITH A MEXICAN ATTITUDE!

Since 2004, Troker music mixes structures from jazz and weaves them with rhythms as rock, funk and hip hop to create an unique, tequila flavored sound. With four records, on 2010 they were awarded with the prize for Mexican independent music with an IMAS as Best Album on "Jazz/Fusion" category for their album "El Rey del Camino".
The sextet has 7 international tours through America; with their presentation in the Glastonbury Festival in England they step for the first time in Europe during summer 2013, being invited again for their 2014 edition.
On stage they bring an unprecedented show where new sounds of jazz and progressive mix live. All About Jazz Magazine defines their show as: "Noisy, chaotic, sprawling, messy, and altogether wonderful".
Troker is also concerned about their community, implementing educative social and educative programs aimed a different audiences.
Also interested in working with different art forms, they've worked with artists in diverse branches as photographers, illustrators and filmmakers.
Meeting Troker is an experience in which everything you'll hear, you'll see and you'll feel, is full of Mexican attitude.

Desde el 2004, Troker hace música que toma estructuras del jazz, y las teje con otros ritmos como el rock, funk y hip hop, para crear un sonido único y propio. Con cuatro producciones discográficas, fueron ganadores del premio a la industria independiente de México, IMAS 2010, como Mejor Disco en categoría de “Jazz/Fusión” con su placa “El Rey del Camino”.
Cuentan con siete giras internacionales por Latinoamérica, Estados Unidos y Europa, donde tocaron en el mítico Festival Glastonbury en 2013 y al que regresan en 2014 para llevar al escenario conciertos inigualables donde los nuevos sonidos del jazz y el progresivo se mezclan en vivo. Según la revista All About Jazz, los shows de Troker son: " ruidosos, desvergonzados, caóticos, expresivos, y, en conjunto, maravillosos".
Troker también se interesa por su comunidad, por lo que realizan programas educativos y sociales dirigidos a distintos públicos. Además han trabajado con artistas de diversas ramas culturales como artistas plásticos, cineastas y publicistas.
La música de Troker es una experiencia en la que todo lo que suena, lo que se ve y lo que se siente, está lleno de actitud a la mexicana.
