Its time for jazz fanatics to save the date as the German jazz trio Carlos Bica, Frank Mobus and Jim Black are all set to mesmerise the city today with some enchanting tunes. An initiative by the Goethe-Zentrum, the trio have covered five cities in the country so far, including Delhi, Mumbai and Trivandrum, besides Dhaka, Bangladesh.

While Carlos Bica plays the double bass, Frank Mobus, the guitarist and Jim Black, the drummer, form the other two-thirds of the band under the name Azul. As a trio, Carlos Bica and Azul have been performing for the past 22 years and have even released five records. Apart from working together, they also have their individual projects.

Visiting India for the first time, the jazz musicians find the country pretty fascinating. “India as a country is very different from others. We have performed in the North at Delhi and also covered the South at the city of Trivandram. It’s truly amazing to see one single country having so many variations in terms culture and food,” expresses Frank. When asked about how receptive the audience has been on their tour so far, Carlos says, “I think the people here are open, especially the young audience; they are open to music they have never heard before.”

The musical outfit will be performing today at 7 pm at the open air amphi-theater at the Secret Lake Park, Durgam Cheruvu. Entry is free.
