Our music 'Shaykes' elements and styles of jazz, Latin as well as classical music.

Arnaud Francelet | Kontrabass

Cesar Correa | Piano
Raphael Nick | Drums

With the Trio Shayke the world stands still and listens. The flowing, elegant music transports the listener into a landscape full of colors of European and Latin American cultural influences.


The compositions as well as the improvisations by Shayke differ pleasantly from the previously heard thanks to the three extremely creative and soloist musicians whose concert is like a kaleidoscope. It is easy to say that after a concert by Trio Shayke, the audience leaves the venue with an exhilaration of joy.
