The Trio Scho was founded in 1992 in the Ukrainian city of Poltava. Since 1994, the musicians have mainly been performing on Berlin's stages and are enjoying ever greater success with their repertoire of Russian songs, swing, tango and bossa nova.

Their appearances on radio and television as well as at the Carnival of Cultures show how versatile the three musicians can be. In 2000 and 2011 the trio won the Berlin Senate Music Competition.
