Archer & Tripp's debut album ‘Ko A La Ta Ki’ was recorded in April, 2015, only half a year after they first met, featuring their travel setup of instruments. With several hang/handpans, clarinet, berimbao, tin whistle and calabash, they deliver a first taste of their idea of Groove-world-Music.

All tracks were inspired by and written during their travels in Australia – a lot of people and coincidences along the way were essential in this CD’s happening. 

Recorded at Grooveboy Studios, Melbourne, Australia by the amazing Jeremy Diffey, who also spiced up the last Track with some incredible bass clarinet tones.

Samantha Archer (UK) and Jaron Tripp (GER) first met at the 2014 edition of the world’s first Hang gathering – Hangout UK. During this journey, which has literally taken them around the world, Samantha and Jaron have developed a shared vision of creating a new sound. Although still frequently traveling to share their music, the two are now based in West Germany enabling them to work and integrate more and more of their rare and unique instruments steering them closer towards their idea of ‘Acoustic Trance’.

Samantha’s classical training during her child and teenage years in piano, clarinet and vocals allowed her distinctive and instinctive sense for melody to flower into a skill for both improvisation and composition.

Jaron’s development as a musician is driven by the grounding power of rhythm. When starting to play the Hang in early 2006, the freedom of no tradition matched perfectly with his approach to music.

Since studying complex rhythmical structures in a meditative way, whilst becoming a Taketina teacher (from 2010 – 2012), Jaron’s deep understanding of rhythm and pulse uniquely blends with Samantha’s enchanting melodic tone.

Centered around the Hang, Archer & Tripp create a unique blend of jazz and world music that varies from acoustic trance to complex polyrhythmic compositions.
