En ghanéen, le mot MALA signifie “Je vais chanter!”
Le BonNoir Trio puise ses racines dans la musique traditionelle de l’Afrique de l’Ouest, le blues et le jazz. Leur musique groovy et ouverte au monde, laisse une large place à l’improvisation et à la magie du moment.

Le BonNoir Trio joue ensemble depuis 2016, lorsque Katrine Suwalski (Danemark) et Simon Winse (Burkina Faso/France), se sont rencontrés sur une tournée avec le Há Orchestra au Ghana. C’est ainsi qu’ils ont débuté leur collaboration musicale. Puis Katrine a demandé à son ami de longue date, le percussioniste virtuose Ayi Solomon (Ghana/Danemark) de les rejoindre. Après plusieurs concerts au Danemark, en France et au Burkina Faso, le BonNoir Trio vous présente leur premier album MALA.
