Tripataka: Yakiya

Adrian Sherriff - bass trombone
Jonathan Dimond - electric bass
Adam King - drums

Yakiya is the debut release by Melbourne band Tripataka. This album presents a blend of original compositions that capture the endless inspiration the band members derive from the music of North and South India, Bali, Brazil, Cuba and many other styles of music from around the world.

Trained in these intercultural forms of music as well as jazz and European classical music, the breadth of the band members’ combined experience and instrumental resources far surpass that of a typical contemporary jazz trio.

Tripataka was formed in 2013 and mostly performs music written by the band members. The title track, Yakiya, was composed by Sherriff and inspired by the irrepressible joy of Yakiya, a friend of Adrian’s family. Yakiya was a Papuan tribal elder and church leader from the valley of Makki where Adrian was raised.
