Tomáš Liška & Invisible World
JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
Tomáš Liška‘s “Invisible World“ is a truly unique venture within the landscape of contemporary Czech music. The project ́s own musical compositions combine elements of Jazz, chamber music and World Music from the Mediterranean and South-Eastern regions of the European continent. Their approach is not based on individual exhibitions, but rather on a philosophy where music is a clear and crystalline medium which irradiates a rich palette of emotional hues. These are inspired by strong melodies which are adorned by a subtle and seemingly effortless lacework of improvisation. Invisible World performed on World & Jazz Festivals and venues across Europe, Africa and Japan. In 2017, the group was awarded the Audience Award at the international music conference Ostrava Music Crossroads and recieved the invitation at the Ritmo Festival in Budapest. Tomáš Liška studied upright bass at the J. Ježek Conservatory in Prague and subsequently completed a Masters Programme at the prestigious Jazz Institut Berlin, under the tutelage of renowned North-American musicians and professors Greg Cohen and John Hollenbeck. Tomáš performs at Jazz festivals and venues across Europe, the United States and Latin America. Among his main collaborators are David Dorůžka, Steve Walsh, Luboš Malina, Druhá tráva, Beáta Hlavenková, Cyrille Oswald, Lenka Dusilová, Eternal Seekers, Mark Aanderud, and many others. His debut album Invisible World (2009, Animal Music) was awarded the Tais Awards 2009 prize and it was nominated for the Anděl Prize. Also nominated were his subsequent albums Milokraj (2014, Animal Music) and Bercheros Odyssey (2014, Animal Music). Nikola Zarić is a young Serbian virtuoso accordionist.
