3 Leg Torso formed in 1996 as a violin, cello and accordion trio creating original modern chamber music for their unique instrumentation. Expanding both its musical direction and size to become a quintet, they now perform a synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, latin and world music. Founding members Béla Balogh and Courtney Von Drehle of Portland, Oregon provide the core of 3 Leg Torso’s sound. These highly trained musicians take you on a wild ride, darting back and forth between a variety of tempos and feels in cinematic fashion.
