The Sefardix tri is a climatic fusion of the music of Sefardic Jews, jazz, metaphysical vocalizations straight from Asia and instrumental virtuosity full of cultural references. The artists step beyond stereotypical approach to instruments, widening the sound spectrum of the music they perform.
Jorgos Skolias – vocals
Marcin Oleś – double bass
Bartłomiej Oleś – drums
Jorgos Skolias was raised in a multinational and culturally very diverse environment. His parents were Greek political refugees. He participated in Greek minority events, performing not only ethnic music but also singing rock and blues. As a musician he searches not only for individual formula to use human voice in music but also for inspiration on blues, jazz, rock and ethnic music from Greece through Africa to India. The artist studies ancient vocal techniques and in result he mastered the technique of harmonical singing (using three voices at the same time) also called throat singing. Throat singing is an art of creating harmonical sound together with the base tone, which gives an illusion of making several sounds at the same time. Practiced in many corners of the world, but mainly known from Tuva, a country in the south of Siberia, just above Mongolia.
Brothers – Marcin Oleś double bass player and Bartłomiej Brat Oleś drummer – for more than 10 years habe been creating original music, mainly inspired by jazz. They authored original projects and accompanied many famous jazzmem from all over the world creating a rythmical dream team, as a german magazine JazzZeitung described them. The list of people they worked with include the names of Kenny Werner, David Murray, Rob Brown, Chris Speed, Erik Friedlander, Theo Jorgensmann, Rudi Mahall, William Parker, Andrzej Przybielski and many others. They are discovering new and new ways to break stereotypes and prove that double bass and drums are enough to create complete, energetic music full of unique sounds. They continue their creative search, to enrich the language of jazz with sonoristics and ideas of contemporary music.
