TRIO DINICU: Hailed as “dazzling” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Trio Dinicu combines the forces of three highly distinguished musicians. Luanne Homzy a world-renowned concert violinist; Tommy Davy, a virtuoso guitarist of the young generation of Franco-Russian guitar; and Frank Anastasio, a legendary jazz bassist, vocalist, and guitarist.
Highly regarded for their creativity, Trio Dinicu blends acrobatic technique with the improvisatory language of jazz and the richness of Eastern European folk, including Romanian violin, Russian balalaika, and French “Jazz Hot”.
They have performed for audiences across the United States, Europe and Canada. Their music pays homage to the golden age of the Parisian-Russian cabaret. The Trio is named after the Romanian virtuoso violinist and composer Grigoras Ionica Dinicu, who influenced the one and only Jascha Heifetz and who was admired by Stephane Grappelli, the world’s most famous jazz violinist. The trio has just completed their latest album in 2023 “Cabaret Tzigane”.
“A steam locomotive of an astounding blend of jazz and classical music performed with the virtuosity of masters.” ~ Christopher Donison, Director of Music By The Sea At Bamfield
GEORGE MIU: One of the world’s leading interpreters of the cimbalom ( known as cimbalom, or hammered dulcimer), a symbolic instrument of the Hungarian and Romanian repertoire, a modern and “chromatic” variant of the so-called psaltery, an instrument in which the strings are struck by two stakes.
He was born into a Lautari family, professional musicians mostly of Roma ethnicity, son of the legendary Ion Miu, nicknamed “The Godfather of the Cimbalom”, considered one of the main innovators of the modern technique of the Cimbalom, recognized for having broadened the horizons of the instrument from traditional music to classical music and jazz.
George has spent every single day of his life performing with the most famous musicians in Romania. His repertoire is immense and ranges from popular music from all over the Romanian, Hungarian music, jazz, and classical music, sometimes these repertoires intersect each other in such a natural way that they fade the boundaries between one genre and another.
