The Trouble Notes

Sitting between traditional folk, modern classical, and tribal dance music, The Trouble Notes’ newest single “Banjolorian” showcases a playful mix of traditional folk instruments and hip-hop grooves, juxtaposing rural Americana folk and urban rhythms that have been a driver behind the group’s unique sound. The vision for the song came together while traveling extensively in the American west during their Lose Your Ties tour in 2019.

Sitting somewhere between world folk, modern classical, and tribal dance music, The Trouble Notes have traveled their way across the continents in search of different musical influences.

Float across oceans and time with the soulful melodies of Bennet’s violin, and Carola’s voice as your body pulses from the explosive energy via Florian’s guitar. Worldly percussion rhythms transport the audience across genres with an uplifting spirit, for which The Trouble Notes have become renowned around the world.

The Trouble Notes, world travelers turned musicians, are set to release their upcoming single “Liberty Awaits” on November 18th. “Liberty Awaits” is an epic tale paying tribute to the great immigrant voyage, intended to help others connect with their journey and see the parallels to many immigrants of today.

Having traveled the globe with their music, The Trouble Notes are bringing stories of immigration and cultural identity to the stage - starting with their newest single “Mayahuel”. “Mayahuel” is an instrumental composition that romanticizes and tells the story of their friend Martha Xucunostli. A powerful female character, she traveled across an ocean from her native Mexico to Belgium for love and had to navigate the balance between her native traditions and those of her new European home.
