SHALOSH is an instrumental piano trio, that belongs to the current generation of cross genre jazz groups able to
reach a wide spectrum of audiences, in the Jazz world as well as in other genres.
Their music is raw, acoustic and progressive, crossing stylistic boundaries and defying definition.
In its five years of activity, SHALOSH has performed an astonishing 450 international shows on some of the world’s
most prestigious stages.
Despite its classic jazz trio format (piano, bass and drums) and the band members’ deep roots in jazz and
improvised music, SHALOSH’s music weaves its own path and creates a unique and fascinating synthesis out of
such varied genres as Rock, Classical, Electronic, African, and Middle Eastern music.
The story behind the band begins in Jerusalem, where childhood friends Matan Assayag (drums) and Gadi Stern
(piano) formed the mythological Jerusalem band ‘Enoma Elish’
