T R O M P O is a new music ensemble dedicated to the performance of the music of now. T R O M P O is made up of  Carlos Anez (Flute), Marthe Lasthuis (Violin), and Laura Nygren (Double Bass). The three met while studying and living in the Netherlands and bonded over a love of playing together, making strange and beautiful sounds, and stretching the limits of their instruments. 

The name T R O M P O derives from "thump" in Esperanto, an international auxiliary language. Alternatively el trompo is dreidel-like toy popular in Central and South America. El Trompo can also refer to a type of cone shaped meat, similar to kebab, and used on tacos. T R O M P O music chose the name to embody their multicultural, ever spinning and evolving approach to music.
