Smiodair is an international trio, which reunites three leading improvisers that share a long musical history. Between them they have worked extensively with icons and innovators including Robert Plant, Jim Black, Vincent Courtois and John Zorn.
Playing original music composed by each member of the group, this trio constantly weaves in and out of improvisation. The word Smiodair is from the Irish language, and refers to fragments or small broken pieces, analogous to the band's treatment of musical materials, thus creating an exciting musical narrative where thunderous grooves collide with dream-like sonic landscapes.
