Everything you love in the creation of Vasil Hadžimanov, all that is worth the attention, will bring a new sound of a saxophone of the Russian musician. Versatile, charismatic and in a whole new way. For his part, Vasil will bring in new colors and a Balkan rhythm in compositions written by Oleg Kireyev. More traditional colored jazz classics.
The musicians have chosen their favorite works of art which show their mastery and talent in the most explicit way.
Russian jazz and Balkan fusion – so in a couple of words it would be possible to describe the direction of the program that will be presented by musicians not only to jazz lovers, but also to all the admirers of great and content sound.
Oleg Kireyev and Vasil Hadzimanov started their cooperation two years ago. together they started to explore the mix of traditional music and popular songs, which resulted in the creation of a new Russian-Serbian jazz project.
