Since coming to the jazz scene in Guadalajara in 2004, Troker was like a breath of fresh air. The frenetic groove and playful jam sessions made them one of the favourite bands in the growing jazz scene in the city and soon began to attract national media attention and share the stage- even before having a record with international jazz exponents. But it was until 2007 with the release of their first album “Jazz Vinil” that the band decided to make Troker a way of living.
Troker’s desire has always been composing instrumental music, free of labels, sounds that all together express who they are and where they come from, so at some point in their creative process, involving rock, progressive, and hip hop into their music was totally natural; this is how the sound of the band is transformed with each album and cultivates their own possibilities to compose music with so much identity.
This artistic flexibility is one of their great strengths, Troker adapts to venues and festival of Jazz, Rock, and World music; and when Troker plays, it’s impossible not to listen.
In the past two years, they have played more than 96 international concerts; but the highlight came when they were invited for the second time to the Glastonbury Festival, being the first band to appear consecutively in the official poster.
