An unmissable set of new original music featuring infectious grooves, fierce rhymes, and edge-of-your-seat improvisations.

One of Perth’s premier improvising ensembles, TRISK returns for PIJF 2021, having formed ahead of PIJF in 2014. Well-known for the fiery musical rapport between keyboardist Chris Foster, bassist Nick Abbey, and drummer Daniel Susnjar, it’s a well-honed blend of jazz, hip hop, R&B and world music.

These three renowned musicians have been repeatedly recognised by WAM, ABC, Freedman Fellowships, and the Jazz Bell Awards, between them sharing the stage with an impressive range of luminaries including Pharrell, Chick Corea, John Scofield, Veronica Swift, Peter Bernstein, Steve Miller, Take 6, Gloria Gaynor, Dave Grusin, Joshua Redman, Dave Douglas, Terence Blanchard, Bobby McFerrin, Drapht, Downsyde, and James Morrison – to name a few!

Following up their 2015 EP Speedrun, the group is currently finalising their debut full-length album, which is expected to drop in early 2022. This exciting project will see them join forces with incredible MCs and vocalists from WA and beyond.

Joining them for their highly anticipated PIJF return show is their long-time collaborator – the legendary MC Optamus. Expect an unmissable set of new music featuring infectious grooves, fierce rhymes, and edge-of-your-seat improvisations.
