Atatu Trio

Kanteena Duration: 1 hour Get Tickets

Atatu Trio were formed in 2022 after a chance encounter at We Out Here Festival and decided to get in a room together and start jamming. What came out surprised all members, their sound is a fusion of Latin, Jazz, Brazilian, Spoken work and Funk. Each member has brought a wealth of experience to the trio, Adrian has toured extensively with the likes of trumpeter Kevin Davey of ‘Lamb’ and Ninja Tunes ‘Fink’, he has also released a solo LP under the moniker ‘Official Burnt Toast’ on the label Sonkrif.

Fraser has been djing jazz on the circuit since the late 80s, he was a resident DJ at The Wardrobe in Leeds and has an incredible roster of musicians and bands that he has played alongside, artists such as Roy Ayers, Azymuth, Marlina Shaw & Antibalas. During this time, he also toured Italy with the band Nidid’arac on Bass guitar.

Wills background originally started in classical music; he was taught under the stewardship of Peter Young before embarking on a Jazz degree at the University of Hull. He held a residency at Princess Ave in Hull with his jazz Quintet ‘The Dalis Collective’ for 3 years. After graduating he self-released music under the moniker ‘Lafrobur’.

The word ‘Atatu’ is derived from Wills native language ‘Chichewa’ and translates to the number ‘Three’, it felt a fitting name for the three members whose diverse backgrounds have shaped their unique sound.
