Though the joint project SOLOMINBAND group appeared recently, but has already become symbolic. This is not actually strange, because the joining of efforts of four talanted outstanding people can not bring out anything, but striking, new and unique. Really, tandem of the three musicians, who probably must have been the first to unite authentic ukrainian melos and professional jazz,and the musician, who can play Bach concerts and the Paganini caprices on domra as well as jazz-rock and trip-hop music, his own compositions and ethno-jazz, can't do anything but fascinate the listener. In the music created by SOLOMINBAND much have been interweaved: folklore tunes, contemporary jazz music and very impressive presentation manner...

Domra. It's a mandolin-like instrument with a rich history of musical development, that allows, unlike mandolin, to play technical very sophisticated and deep compositions.
