Live People Ensemble is a Moscow-based band that was founded in 2009 by Russian pianist and
composer Natalya Skvortsova. They play original music that feels stylistically close to contemporary
European jazz, while also incorporating influences from the band members’ personal and cultural
backgrounds. The musicians use various elements of jazz and art music tradition, folk and world
music, and contemporary rhythmic and harmonic-rhythmic structures to convey emotion and live
energy in their music.
Live People Ensemble performs both original music written by bandleader Natalya Skvortsova and
the other band members, and original arrangements of popular jazz pieces
