Belgian piano trio Donder offers an unusual perspective on the usual piano trio. Avoiding set formulas and formats, they paint abstract and plastic landscapes that evoke stillness, confusion and wonder. The music of Donder is authentic and unpretentious, and pays tribute to the sounds and stories of everyday life.

Since their first concerts in 2015, Donder has toured extensively in Europe and released four full albums, including an LP with Danish reed player Lars Greve (Girls in Airports/Bon Iver). They won several prizes, including the Young Jazz Talent Ghent award in 2019 which lead to a cooperation with Norwegian harmonium player Sigbjørn Apeland. The resulting album ‘Het Verdriet’ came out in 2020. In 2024, they are touring with a ‘laying down concert’ series and will be releasing their fifth long player ‘De Wonderen’.
