Our music is a way to connect traditions with modernity. In absolutely non-standard manner we combine ancient ethnic tunes of different regions all over the world with modern music standards, jazz improvisation, contemporary composition and with progressive music trends of nowadays.

Ethnic features of every song underlined with characteristic rhythmic patterns and special sound qualities of acoustical instruments while electronic elements provide influence of modernity that helps to integrate unfamiliar listeners into traditions of world music.
