Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet

Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival 2018

The Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet is a fresh, new collaboration between Israeli drummer/composer Sirkis and Polish vocalist extraordinaire Bialas.

With an emphasis on band interaction and sheer joy of playing, this band celebrates music from both collaborators, covering a wide range of influences such as contemporary classical music, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern musics 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 and strong grooves from this electro-acoustic jazz ensemble.

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.

“Since arriving in London from Israel at the end of the ’90s, Asaf Sirkis has earned a reputation as one of the world’s premier drummers.” Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
