One of my impulses was the need for a change; I wanted to introduce a new theme to basic principles of jazz with my own enjoyment and passion, simply in “gipsy style”.
Ida Kelarová is one of the most respectful gipsy singers and each of her new recordings is a big thing for everybody who loves not just gipsy music but jazz as well. Lately, Ida Kelarová is, together with her partner Desiderius Dužda, dedicating to connection of vivid gipsy music and classical jazz. Aven Bachtale is a new recording by Ida Kelarová and Desiderius Dužda, which with the support of their outstanding Jazz Famelija band proves refined sensibility for finding harmony between gipsy music and jazz. It’s an emotional experience of pure musical art.
When I’m singing I feel happy. I take joy as a great gift. I believe that human creativity can modify, develop and evaluate joy during lifetime and our soul is capable to elevate it to art.
