Asaf Sirkis is a hugely respected player on the UK’s scene – a brilliantly versatile drummer and percussionist whose multi- layered influences lend a special air to his music. A leader in his own right, Sirkis’ playing has been a crucial component to the work of players like Gilad Atzmon, Nicolas Meier and Tim Garland.
This latest project is a collaboration with Polish vocalist Sylwia Bialas, and despite taking its inspiration from a similarly broad range of sources as his previous groups, the music they produce has its own identity. Bialas sings in Polish and adds her own distinctive touch to the proceedings, as contemporary jazz sounds are deftly mixed with melodic and rhythmic ideas from the Middle East and India as well as from European classical and folk traditions. The group is touring to support the release of their debut recording in November 2014.

“Sirkis's compositions, like his creative, elegant drumming, are inviting and challenging. The contrasting textures and moods slide in and out of one another seamlessly.” - Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
“Asaf Sirkis sounding creatively freer and more dramatically inventive than ever on drums” - John Fordham, The Guardian
“Bialas's voice is not only exceptional, both in timbre and range, but her improvisations are stunning. She uses her voice like an instrument, wordless, powerful, soaring...” – Free Jazz Album Reviews.
