Alain Apaloo's APT3 will quite possibly knock your socks off with their infectious Blues with a touch of West African influences. They have played together more than 10 years and both Morten and Rasmus have backed Alain on his albums ”Flying Vision” (Gateway Music, 2007) and ”ApiPipo - Floodgate” (Stunt Records, 2009). "Floodgate" won a Danish World Music Award for Album of the year 2009.
Their highly energetic performances have secured Alain Apaloo's APT3 a reputation as one to watch, and the future for this talented trio looks bright, to say the least.
Alain Apaloo, a graduate of The Rythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen, was born in Togo, Africa and has been a musician all his life.
He is the winner of The Danish Blues Challenge 2009. Alain has played with an endless list of international musicians. He has travelled the world with his eclectic mix of all kinds of influences in his Blues music to rave reviews everywhere he has gone. Since moving to Denmark more than 10 years ago, he has been involved in a myriad of musical projects.
Morten Ankarfeldt and Rasmus Lund are both household names on the Danish music scene, having played with The Danish Radio Big Band, Karen Mukupa, James Harman, Malene Mortensen, Thorbjørn Risager, Peter Rosendal, Peter Belli, Peter Nande, Nicolaj Bentzon and many more...
Morten and Rasmus have backed Alain ever since he touched down on Danish soil in 1999. They provide the rhythmic backbone of APT3 while displaying telepathically jointed musicality.
