Concepts


LOST LANGUAGES

Conceptual project which links music, art, ethnography, linguistics and cultural and human heritage of the Marcin Oles. Although conceptual in its nature and effects, it is primarily a deeply humanitarian artistic project. He refers, inter alia, to the concept of time passing by the Polish artist, artist and conceptual artist, Roman Opałka. However, while the work of Opałka was focused on passing time as such, the Lost Languages project puts emphasis on the moment of passing of culture. In its symbolic expression, the language that is a carrier of culture dies with it, often leaving behind even the fossil of human presence.


JAZZ ESSENCE

Polish trio comprising of Oles Brothers (most revered Jazz rhythm section: bassist Marcin Oles and drummer Bartlomiej Oles) with vocalist Jorgos Skolias (of Greek origin), pays homage to the Sephardic Culture, based on traditional Ladino, Greek, Balkan and other Mediterranean sources, adopted and re- invented by the trio. All the songs are translated and transformed into the Greek language. The trio is also referred to as SEFARDIX, a name they adopted from the title of their debut album together, recorded four years earlier (Folk Phonogram of the year 2013 by Polish Radio Program 2).
Together with the vocals the full sound of the trio is incredibly expressive and lacks absolutely nothing.
