Ingi Bjarni Trio brings together three active musicians from Iceland and the Faroe Islands. The members of the trio are: Ingi Bjarni Skúlason from Iceland on piano, Bárður Reinert Poulsen (The Fjords, Espen Berg Trio) from the Faroe Islands on bass and Magnús Trygvason Eliassen (ADHD, amiina) from Iceland on drums.
The trio has played at various venues in Europe, and recently the trio played at Reykjavík Jazz Festival. They play their own kind of folk music, with the freedom of expressiveness and space for free improvisation. New album was released in September 2018 on New York based label Dot Time Records. The title of the album, Fundur, translates to: a finding/discovery or “to have found something.” One track from the album was featured on Spotify playlist "State of Jazz" resulting in over 74 thousand listeners!
"Ingi Bjarni Skúlason’s creativity is to be admired, and his bassist and drummer have clear empathy with his writing. This is emotionally-conceived piano trio music to focus on and savour – an engaging ‘fundur’, for sure." - London Jazz News
