The opening act is Plaistow. The music by the Swiss band Plaistow is often dubbed `post jazz`. Plaistow in fact often defies genre definitions and could be anything from minimalism to improvisation. The classical trio line-up -piano, bass, drums- is revisited from top to bottom free from any stylistic constraint. The band`s music which is entirely acoustic is constantly evolving.
