are a Swiss post-genre band. They are: Raphael Loher (piano), Urs Mülller (guitar) and Nicolas Stocker (drums). They function as a collective, with every member contributing equally to the writing and creative processes. Their latest record is titled LOOM. Their original score for Thomas Imbach's movie NEMESIS will arrive in 2021. It was nominated for Solothurn Film Festival 20210 in the category Best Documentary and Best Sound. They are natives of a contemporary musical world in which prog groove, noise, new minimal, ambient and new classical chamber music are just dialects of a common language. They feel at home in a composed and simultaneously in a free improvised musical context and follow their musical intuition with a wide and non-ideological understanding of music history.
With this background KALI Trio creates beautiful dark pattern spaces, hard minimal grooves and abstract mystical journeys with sound sensibility and progressive power. The band’s creative range varies from epic mystic dramaturgies to minimalistic miniatures of twinkling beauty. KALI Trio received ZKB Jazz “The Audience Award” in 2017 and also awarded from city of Lucerne in 2018. KALI was performed in the last years for several festivals like Jazz festival Willisau, Cully Jazz, InJazz Rotterdam, Match&Fuse Festival and Suisse Diagonales Jazz.
