Asaf Sirkis/Sylwia Bialis IQ
Sirkis/Bialas International Quartetis a collaboration between Israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis, known for his work with an array of international jazz players, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas. With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, this band celebrates music from a wide range of influences: contemporary classical, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern music as well as a wide range of dynamics.
From the most delicate ballad all the way to high-energy electric virtuoso lines and everything in between. Expect soulful melodies, aerospheric sounds with strong grooves, a full colour electroacoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects.
The Sirkis/Bialas IQ have a new double album called – OUR NEW EARTH – which will be released in 2019 on the NYC record label Moonjune
