ABOUT THE BAND:

                Hashima is a Belgrade jazz quartet that combines various musical experiences into a new music defined by a well known jazz critic Thomas Conrad (USA) as “an unusual confluence of classicism, avantgarde racket, lyricism and Balkan folk forms”. Among musicians that inspire them, they prefer Wayne Shorter, John Zorn, Igor Stravinsky, improv, post-rock and folklore. Their poetics draws on European arthouse film and literature, which are subliminally intertwined with the core of their original music giving it a programmatic character. The themes of Igor Miskovic’s compositions mainly consist of musical motives that are fully developed through arrangements and free improvisations, without restraining from noise or subtle lyrical miniatures. Four different instruments and sensibilities convene in form, stripped from traditional stylistic features, its content inspired by the distant abandoned island in Japan – Hashima.
