“Every person has their “sea”. It is something that is hidden in their souls. And nobody will tell you, what it is exactly. It can be love, it can be nature, music, family… – it’s just the wild, huge ocean that lives in our hearts and puts us in motion”.
AVDYSH – a Ukrainian contemporary jazz project, the soloist of which is a young singer Kateryna Avdysh. The main repertoire contains her own music and arrangements of Ukrainian songs. Each composition shows us its special story – own or created and influenced by different personalities.
The main idea of AVDYSH is to pay attention to qualitative modern music, to Ukrainian language, culture and to speak about Ukraine as a strong, independent country.
The main genres of the project are contemporary jazz and fusion. We connect the freedom of jazz music, the depth of Ukrainian motives and the vision of the world in a form of contemporary art.
“Our language and culture are full of mysteries, and these mysteries will be transferred as long as the Ukrainian language lives. And only artists can save its life. I’m free as my country is. Inhumans came to my home, they started to kill me, my family, to destroy my country and my life.
I want to do my best and to shout loudly about my Ukraine, to support our citizens, and to make the world fight for our lives. Everyone will find something in my music that they identify with.
Jazz is the one planet, where your emotions can run free”.
Kateryna Avdysh writes music that is close to people’s hearts, infusing her Ukrainian roots into her compositions to create contemporary art that everyone can appreciate.
