|SenaneS 3 is not one trio but several. In fact, its members (Gabriel Senanes on sax, guitar and bansuri, Pablo Marcovsky on piano and melodica, and Diego Arnal on bass and guitar), exchanging instruments, create different groups, even during the same piece. Different trios and different duos, solos, and even different silences.
The repertoire consists of Senanes’ compositions, in a language that uniquely combines argentine folk music, tango, jazz, contemporary chamber music, and probably much more, who knows. He calls this combination “ArgenTangLore” or “Argentangloric music”.
Therefore, the complete formula is:
SenaneS 3 = Pablo + Diego + Gabriel = Argentinean Folk + Tango + Jazz + Contemporary + who knows.
