About

JIZEL'S BAND (experimental folk) - The Minsk-based trio was formed at the end of 1999. Since then they have given over 100 concerts in a variety of places, from artistic cafes to big open-air events. The group's artistic work consists mainly of acoustic instrumental pieces drawing on the musical traditions of Slavic nations. As they admit, they rely on their instruments, without which the band would not have come into being. "We gathered some old instruments, tried to play something in order to check how they sound together. We liked that.."

Domra, the double bass, was incidentally discovered by Sasha in the basement of an old house in Minsk. He decided to restore it, and it turned out to be over 50 years old and a truly rare instrument. The guitar was made by Andriej himself. To get hold of bandura, a Ukrainian national instrument, they had to travel to Kiev. Elements of their percussion were also brought over from different places. All these efforts resulted in forming a fairly unusual mixture of instruments, which makes the sound of Jizel's Band really unique.

JIZEL'S BAND (experimental folk) - проект образовался в 1999 г., успешно выступал на многочисленных концертных площадках Беларуси (клубы, фестивали "Синий перец", "Пилигримы" и др.) и Польши (фестиваль "Миколайки фолковые" -- 2002 г.). Основная идея - синтезировать акустическое звучание (домра, бонги, гитара) с электронной основой. Собственными усилиями выпустили два альбома: "Антинаворот" (2000), "Mega Iota" (2002).
