Elik duo is the new project of Svitlana Nianio of the legendary band “Sugar White Death” and Polish free-jazz guitarist Raphael Rogiński, famous for his original interpretations of academic music and collaborations with various musical collectives: Shofar, Cukunft, Żywizna.
The music of the duo is an organic mix of the baroque tradition, Slavic mysticism, and compositional minimalism. Polish music critics note the syncretism of various artistic epochs and the chamber sound in the music of the duo, which allows the audience to listen to the sources of creation of a new unknown mythology.
The duo was created in 2017. It performed on numerous occasions at Polish festivals, in particular Ethniesy and WROCloveUKRAINA. The concert in Kyiv will be the first performance of the duo in Ukraine.
