Njord Puffin by 3'Ain
Contemporary Jazz with an Oriental Twist

We were planning an avant-premiere of our first EP at the now postponed Choux-Fest on April 4th.

Since that’s no longer possible, we decided to give you a sneak peak online. 

Nothing fancy. 

This is the iPhone recording of the run-through at Wildernis Strmbk before actually recording.
Unmixed, unmastered and unedited.

Keeping it real.


We like to name our songs after things we see while creating them.

When rehearsing in Oostende, where Yamen lives, what we see is mostly boats.

The title ‘Njord Puffin’ is the name of one of those boats.



We weren’t planning on making this recording public, but these special times call for especially positive vibes.

Did you know scientists have discovered that music can play an important part in generating hope?

So there you go.

Enjoy, relax and generate hope.

TEASER!
We're working on the release of the first EP by 3'Ain. Things are a little different now, with the quarantine, but as always we're staying positive and are committed to bring you our best music vibes to hopefully brighten your day.

To start: a look into the recording process at Wildernis Strmbk with a slightly unconcentrated Yamen Martini on trumpet, Otto Kint on upright bass and Piet Maris on accordeon.
Watch it below or on Facebook and tell us what you think!

Disclaimer: we take our health and yours seriously. This was recorded a while before Covid19 quarantine. Everyone at Choux de Bruxelles - artist collective is working from home.

Stay safe, help each other.
Spread music, not the virus.
