Nora Bite trio performed at venue Troyganic ( London, Hoxton) as a weekly residency for 4 years. They are professional and exciting band! Great musicians! Amazing compositions. The repertoire consists of a large repertoire of original compositions and jazz standards. Nora and her bands are highly recommended!
