Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet
The Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet is a fresh new collaboration between Israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis, known for his work with the Lighthouse Trio (ACT), Gilad Atzmon, Tim Garland, Larry Corryel, John Abercrombie & the Asaf Sirkis trio, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas (Germany-resident), with USA resident bassist and harmonica player Patrick Bettison, and the acclaimed Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards (UK). The quartet has recently been touring the UK and recording their new album 'Dreams Dreams'.
With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, they encompass various influences such as contemporary classical music, 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.
