Nybakat! goes "beyond jazz" and mixing it with everything from folk music to ..... you name it.(listen here) In Nybakat's music you will find colors and spices of Flamenco, Boogi- Woogi, Contemporary Improvised Music, Swedish polska, Jewish klezmer, classical music and more.  

 

The debut CD Nybakat! (Mindoors Music 2007) presents "fresh baked" approach to the mixture of scandinavian folk music and jazz: original interpretations of famous Scandinavian folk songs, Swedish “visor”, psalms and own compositions inspired by folk music from around the world.

 

The second CD Happy Land (Mindoors Music 2010) is consisting of twelve cross - genre original compositions written by all four members of the band.  
It's neither jazz and nor folk anymore - just a musical journey with no style definition. The facets of this musical kaleidoscope are finely glued together with bold melodic lines, energetic folk-based grooves and dynamic composition. The result is an adventure - full of colors and fantasy.

 

All the band members have jazz background, but each one brings his own experience from different music genres:
Björn Dahlberg is playing Swedish, Bulgarian and African Music and also touring around the world with pop groups.

Vlad Nedelin was a percussion player in Irish, Balkan bands. Besides his career as a jazz drummer he played indie-rock, fusion and musicals.

Ira Mogilevsky was raised on classical music, but played many styles from pop to "avant-guard".

Markus Hängsel is leading a punk-jazz band and playing Hip-Hop, Salsa.


Such a variety of musical influences and cultural backgrounds adds colors, surprises and freshness to the sound of Nybakat!. The result is an interesting mosaic in which strong rhythmical energy of jazz merges naturally with simple, recognizable folk melodies;  unlimited freedom of improvisation intertwines with nearly classical approach to the composition and arrangement; odd ethnic meters get along with simplicity of "pop" beats.
