Three Leipzig-based international friends with three different writing and performance styles have come together to form the dynamic and eclectic trio Inky Ensemble.

They will be chatting with host David Dichelle, performing some spoken word and playing some songs on the English-language show Continental Subway. Check out this post for more places where you can find them in the near future, and a sample of their performance.
