"Tristan Zaba is a musician prone to flights of experimentation"(Mark Anthony Brennan, ridethetempo.com), testing the preconceptions of various genres and disciplines. With the intent of engaging and challenging both audiences and fellow musicians in a meaningful way, Tristan seeks to employ experimentalism within a broader cultural context. He and his band Zaba have been compared to Frank Zappa and the Mothers by Doug Kretchmer of Community News Commons.
Winnipeg multi-instrumentalist Kerrigan Salnikowski is known for his past work with the Psychics, Zaba, and other Winnipeg bands. However, his unique brand of Tom Waits and Ben Folds influenced piano rock is seldom heard. Prepare for a set of quirk, charm, and virtuosity.
Leonard Cohen Reconstructed:
A reconstruction of Leonard Cohen as performer and songwriter by Tristan Zaba. Half cover set, half original set in the spirit and style of the late troubadour.
