On English, whole text from JazzTimes website:

Hashima is an intriguing young band based on the unusual compositional forms of guitarist Igor Mišković.

You won’t find many avant-garde jazz quartets more in control of dynamic contrast, or more comfortable with open space (including silence). Hashima is in the business of telling stories.

Pieces might begin with Mišković and tenor saxophonist Srdan Mijalković hammering together over a stripped-down beat by drummer Aleksandar Hristić. Then everything might go whisper-soft, Mišković barely touching his strings (but Hristić still grooving).

Hashima’s stories are never simple.
