Gilfema is a jazz trio consisting of guitarist Lionel Loueke, bassist Massimo Biolcati, and drummer Ferenc Nemeth. The name of the group is derived from the first letters of the musicians' names, Gil for Lionel Gilles Loueke. The three musicians from entirely different geographical backgrounds (Loueke from West Africa, Nemeth from Hungary, Biolcati the Italian born in Sweden) met at Berklee. The same members form the "Lionel Loueke Trio", the differentiating factor being that the Lionel Loueke Trio plays all original music written by Loueke while Gilfema offers compositions by all three musicians.
