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. Next step after the return to Ukraine was a cooperation with the famous Lviv DJ Buratino. Together we experiment combining jazz, folk and electronic music achievements. The result turned out to be fascinating and in a short while we plan to record our next album, in which we will expose a different side of our creative work - acid jazz. http://www.myspace.com/shockolad Read more on Last.fm.
