• Adrian Sherriff - bass trombone, morsing, bata, percussion, voice
• Jonathan Dimond – 6-string and fretless electric bass guitars, percussion, voice
• Adam King – drums, voice

This is the band's debut album, recorded in 2015.
Recorded and mixed by Michael Hewes, Run Stop Sound
Released on Tall Poppies (TP242)


released August 13, 2017

"There may be only three musicians on this recording, but their combined sound is as powerful and expressive as a great big band. Polymetric drum grooves full of deep funky soul; electric bass lines that float like butterflies and sting like bees; trombone melodies singing, soaring, and diving — Tripataka’s ensemble sound is astringent, tough, and uncompromising — yet the loose authenticity of folk tradition saturates even the most complex pieces. Composition and improvisation interweave seamlessly, and the total effect is exhilarating — watch the movie inside your head while you listen, because the cinematography is terrific.”
Warren Senders, Boston, USA, 2017.
