Their first CD release KALIKO reflects this diversity, offering a jazz anchored in modernity, where electronic sounds meet the deepness of the piano and the double-bass, where composition easily mixes with total improvisation.
Since ist foundation WEI3 has performed at the festival „Vive le Jazz“ in Germany, at the NRW Representations in Brussels and Berlin, at the Goethe-Institut Paris and in the University of Arras/France.
