Born in 1960, Erik Truffaz was raised with music, discovering the stage alongside father, a saxophonist. He perfected his technique as a trumpeter, and signed on with the Blue Note Label in 1996. His compositions, sometimes described as “collages”, mix textures and atmospheres in an experimental approach to jazz music, sometimes compared to Miles Davis.
Truffaz is also a traveler: in 2008, he began an ambitious project, Rendez-Vous, a series of albums recorded in three cities – Paris, Mexico, Bénarès – each depicting a real encounter with local musicians.
After his first visit to the Indian cities of Kolkata and Varanasi, Erik Truffaz wanted to create a new project for Bonjour India. A residency will organised with electronic music producer Riatsu, will give birth to a new Indo-French collaboration for Bonjour India. A special event in Mumbai will also see Truffaz the stage with famous pianist Louiz Banks.
