ShockolaD

ShockolaD - ukrainian jazz-band. Musicians combines jazz music and ukrainian folk in their work. In addition to ethno-jazz, they are experimenting with electronic sound and lyrics of Ukrainian and Polish poets. The band permanently takes part in international festivals: "Jazzbez" (2004-2009), "Lviv Flugers" (2005-2010), Metro Jazz (2005), "Jednist" (2007), "Starzy i Mlodzi, chilli jazz in Krakow(2007), "Art-machine" 2009","Jazz Fest" (Sumy 2008), "The 19th Ukrainian Culture Festival" (Sopot 2008), FortMissia (2009-2010), Amiens Jazz Festival (2009)
For six months (February - July 2008) some members of the band: Dana Vynnytska (vokal), Igor Gnydyn (drums), Anastasia Lytvyniuk (piano) have stayed in Warsaw. It was a scholarship program of Minister of the Polish Culture "Gaude Polonia". The participation in the scholarship program let us not only study with the legendary musicians of Polish Jazz: Andrzei Jagodzinski (piano), Czeslav Bartkovski (drums), Janusz Szrom (jazz vokal), but also gave us profound basis for creative exchange. The first step was a cooperation with famous Polish musicians Michal Jaros (double-bass), Tomas Dabrowski (trumpet).
United creative search led to the music that combined in itself Ukrainian folk roots, experience of the Polish Jazz and the New World music ideas. Exchange of emotions, thoughts, energies gave birth to the new music, where everyone found something of his own. As a result, there has appeared a record and addition to the disc Shokolad+PL "number one" and a series of concerts in Poland and Ukraine.
The most important event 2009r. is the new album "Pokosy". The basis of most songs is ukrainian folk songs, which after transformation of consciousness through the group acquired the jazz sound. .

Albums:

ShockolaD. Single. /mini-pack/.


ShockolaD again combines Ukrainian folklore with improvisational music, and the ethnic component, as well as before, is strong and expressive but this time the group represents fusion that literally borders on world music. In other words, in our view, this is soft music understandable for a very wide public which, nevertheless, remains pleasantly intelligent, delicate.

Off-Quar-Tet, ShockolaD. Jazz:Kolo:Bez. Live. (DVD).


One can already see from the very name: this concert became a joint project of Lviv festival "Jazz Bez" and the Kyiv series of mini-festivals "Jazz-Kolo". However, two concerts took place on that evening in actual fact and those performances were so different that almost no temptation even arises to compare them with each other.

Off-Quar-Tet, ShockolaD. Jazz:Kolo:Bez. live. (2CD). /digi-pack/


..two concerts took place on that evening in actual fact and those performances were so different that almost no temptation even arises to compare them with each other. But another thing is always the main one: whether the musicians succeed in revealing themselves in music and, thus, revealing the audience with the music. And here, presumably, there will be no objections: all of that happened!

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, eco-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.

Ewa Novel, ShockolaD. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.

Songs:

Drum Kolo. (2CD). /digi-pack/


Another volume of the audio reference book by the "Jazz Kolo" project is, as you see, focused on masters of drumkit playing. It is nice to see that this time there again appears so much material that the compilers did not manage to squeeze everything into one disc. It is nice to see that there is enough space both for "veterans" of the Ukrainian jazz, and for the absolutely young generation..
