Katharsis was born in 2020 from the meeting of three musicians and long-time friends who had been playing together for years in different contexts (BlueRing Improvisers among others) and decided to bring together their mutual influences in a stable formation.

The trio tries to reconcile European jazz, the heritage of free, contemporary sounds, and impromptu composition, creating fragile but intense music, instinctively controlled and made consistent by the deep contact between the musicians.

“People and Places”, their debut album, was recorded in 2021, consisting only of original pieces written specifically for this formation by the three musicians, who explore them through the practice of free improvisation.
