For more than a decade, pianist and composer David Ryshpan has been an active figure on Montreal’s jazz, hip-hop, and world music scenes. Born in Toronto, his studies have taken him to McGill University, the Banff Centre for the Arts, and the BMI Jazz Composers Workshop in New York led by Jim McNeely. He leads the contemporary jazz group Indigone Trio, as well as his homage to Brazilian instrumental music, Trio Bruxo. David has performed as a sideman with samba-soul pioneer Jorge Ben Jor, saxophonist/”sound griot” Matana Roberts, and is a member of the Kalmunity Vibe Collective.
