Welcome to our page about the jazz trio called InFocus. The trio consists of Ola Melander who plays the piano, Hannes Wall who plays the bas and Christofer Dahl who plays the drums. Our style is a mixture of Nordic folk tunes and bulgarian rhythms, mostly in 7 or 5 beat.
We also combine Indian elements and Ola Melander plays piano with left hand and tabla with right hand. The trio has played with several Swedish jazz musicians as, Georg Wadenius, Janne Schaffer, Ulf Adaker, Sofi Hellborg. Ola Melander has toured with Indian musicicians in the Island of Reunion. InFocus have been rewarded and won prices. The nordic folk melodies combined with the bulgarian and indian elements makes a unique sound. Ola Melander composes all music and the pieces are often short compositions in approximately 3 minutes long. The idea is to spread Jazz music to a broader public. The compositions are catchy but also complicated in he same time.
Our influences are Esbjorn Svenssons trio, Jan Johansson, John Mc Laughlin, Chick Corea among others.
