Pi

Active since:

"Pi”, the band with a transcendent constant used for its name, is a project about the musical and mathematical structure of "cosmos" that arises within each member of the band and is formed into fusion of various musical characters in the search for harmony of spheres, harmony of the world. Quite ironically the musicians call themselves as “musical community number Pi", leaving the determination open and not strictly fixed. Their music is artfully and deliberately saturated with allegories and metaphors. Original pieces and arrangements, created with respect to the traditions of jazz and classics, use all possible modern means of expression

Sergey Dolzhenkov Quintet

Active since:

Sergey Dolzhenkov Quintet is a vivid evidence of the fact that there are no rigid stylistic boundaries in contemporary music for a long time. Trombonist Sergey Dolzhenkov, who grew up on the works of The Prodigy and Brecker Brothers, confidently breaks traditional stereotypes of perception, using unusual techniques of sound production, bringing musical structures to traditional jazz-rock fusion that are characteristic of other styles such as hip-hop and drum&bass. Any listener, even if in a jazz club for the first time, will be impressed by the power of energy, rich sound and dedication of the musicians of the Sergey Dolzhenkov Quintet

Amber Sept

Active since:

AMBERT SEPT is a conceptual project of the Russian jazz scene, a dynamic and bright collective led by the drummer Ignat Kravtsov. The band's main focus is a perpetual search - of the stories, ideas, sound, new colours for the emotional self-expression. Thus its name is not exactly about the month and time (A.S. first gig was performed in September), but rather about the harvesting, the moment to summarize one's musical discoveries and investigations and one's experience of life. It's about September as the real gold of summer, amber color leaves that fall from trees, warming the earth from the coming winter
