"This is in everything we do."

As we began playing our original music, presented in the album, our musical encounter became an immediate surprise. The musical core of each one of us interconnected spontaneously - no masks, no filters.


Our music emphasizes refined emotions and cultivates an experience of the present moment, using musical elements of deconstruction.


We were able to tap into it, manifesting  who we are as exploring artists.

The hidden values of Charles Mingus’ music are at the core of our music-making.

Mingus especially inspires us with his ability to take the listener on an unexpected emotional roller-coaster within just one piece!


Mingus' music reflects the nature of life as a constant change, with its ups and downs and imperfection. Time and again Mingus brings contradicting musical elements to the present moment, which has an immediate effect on the mood of the piece.


Elements in our music are inspired by Mingus, focusing on changing emotions, interpreting life and creating rare musical moments.
