Sirkis/Bialis International Quartet
With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, the music covers a wide range of influences including jazz, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern music. Expect soulful melodies, atmospheric sounds with strong grooves, a full colour electro-acoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects.
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, Asaf Sirkis Trio, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas. The quartet features London based, Scottish bassist Kevin Glasgow, and the acclaimed Frank Harrison on piano and keyboards (UK). Together they display a wide range of dynamics from the most delicate ballad all the way to high-energy electric virtuoso lines and everything in between.
The quartet`s latest album “Come To Me” was released 2014 at the London Jazz Festival and the band has been touring in the UK and Europe since.
Line Up: Sylwia Bialas - Vocals, Asaf Sirkis - Drums, Frank Harrison - Keyboards and Kevin Glasgow – - Bass
