Asaf Sirkis - A new project, a new band

by Asaf Sirkis

Hi folks, I wanted to tell you about a new project I'm creating together with great Polish singer Sylwia Bialas. It a new quartet featuring Sylwia, myself, pianist Frank Harrison whom I've known for many years and Patrick Bettison on bass and harmonica who will be coming all the way from Florida, USA to join us (thanks Patrick!). The project will feature music both from Sylwia and myself. We have a nice little run of gigs before we go into the studio to record our first album - gigs details below. Looking forward to see you and playing some new music!

"Sirkis is not only an inventive drummer but also a composer of rigour, wit and surprising delicacy" . Chris Ingham, Mojo Magazine

"Bialas' voice is not only exceptional, both in timbre and range, but her improvisations are stunning. She uses her voice like an instrument, wordless, powerful, soaring..." - Fusion, world, jazz website, Los Angeles.
