Trinity is a band formed by 4 young talented musicians from the Netherlands. Three of the band members, the Smelt brothers, spent their childhood in Peru. Their South American up-tempo musical roots together with their love for Celtic music are the ingredients of Trinity's passionate pop songs. This album shows influences from even farther flung parts of the globe from the very start, as "Fiesta Celestial" breaks down into a kind of Celtic jig, before segueing into "Freedom I Want", a cultural melting pot including the sounds of Southern Africa and New Orleans, with a dash of Sao Paolo thrown in. What Trinity proves over and over again on 'Qué Mas' is, when executed as well as this, cross-pollination serves to enhance the music. To quote track nine, "Come Together", "The richest of cultures/The finest of arts/The greatest of wonders/In oneness of hearts". At its best, that's exactly what this album sounds like.
