Mopti is a quintet in a more or less traditional jazz format, although they defy this in more than one way, starting with a guitar replacing the traditional piano in a jazz quintet. Further on their compositions are innovative and surprising, their musical expressions are both playful, energetic and lyrical. This combined with five talented instrumentalists make for a jazz band slightly out of the ordinary.
