Sprouting from a rich humus of latin and african polyrhythms, Ghost Horse generates a dark and mysterious ecosystem, digesting, decomposing and recombining elements of free jazz, hip hop, blues and loop music. The result is something fascinating but quietly menacing, pulsing and breathing with the visceral force of nature reclaiming abandoned structures.
Collective trio Hobby Horse has been breaking trail for the flowering Italian jazz underground since the group was formed in 2010. Their irreverent musical approach and unpredictable creative flow have captivated audiences throughout Europe and North America in over 200 live shows, and their six albums have met with widespread critical acclaim (including yearly appearances in Italy’s most important critics’ polls). Ghost Horse is a natural evolution of their vision, expanding on an already vast dynamic and timbric palette thanks to the help of some of the most intriguing emerging voices in Italy.
Their debut record, Trojan, has been released by Mathematics Recordings on double LP and Auand in CD in October, 2019.
