The Creole Tango Orchestra started modestly, seven - but soon enough it grew into a big band with a full brass section. And "L.O.V.E - Love Songs", "Yiddish Jazz" from the very beginning were created, there were not only brass bands, but also several vocalists! And now Andriy Makarevich has decided to take the next step and try a new format. Antithetical.
"I always thought that the clearer the idea, the less visual means it required. It applies to any kind of art. And in general, if you had to play minimalism before, it was mainly because you were no longer able to. Now the picture is different - these musicians are very skilled, so their minimalism is not forced, but conscious "- Andrey
