Naked

jazz / world music / funk | Serbia

Naked is a cutting-edge collaborative core-band with its feet firmly rooted in unique mix of global urban grooves with Balkan, world and free-jazz relishes. 

Naked's fiercely corpulent mix of traditional music heritage from the Balkans with swing and free- jazz is the soundtrack to band’s everlasting quest for true music identity.

West or East? Naked rides over gypsies violins, be bop rhythms and urban wind instruments in a full of energy and deep feeling crossover.

In the beginning of  2015, Naked welcomes with a 3rd studio album „Nakedonia“ [second for Hungarian label Narator Records] and new formation. Striped to a quartet the band gets more naked than ever, extravagantly topped with soul voices of baritone sax, bass clarinet, duduk, zurla and other reeds by Amir Gwirtzman.

Naked realesed tree albums:

"Noyz" 2008 Multikultivator (Serbia)

"get Naked" 2011 Narrator records (Hungary)

“Nakedonia” 2015 Narrator records (Hungary)

In a few years of existence, Naked noted many appearances at important festivals in the country and in abroad.

Naked's new, quartet formation, features Branislav Radojkovic (bass), Goran Milosevic (drums, percussions), Djordje Mijuskovic (violin), Ivan Teofilovic (clarinet, sax). 

 

“There's no limiting the band Naked to one musical genre or one concept. This band inhabits the worlds of jazz, pop, folk and everything in between, exhibiting a keen sense of what's appropriate in every setting it finds itself. Naked is a mesmerizing unit, a collective whose musical syntax continues to suggest there aren't six musicians in the band but one. Mesmerizing and softly propulsive, Naked's Get Naked speaks to a unique combination of creative concepts and influences ranging from the artists' respective globe- spanning backgrounds to their individual interests. GetNaked is clearly a labor of love. It is a cycle of instrumentals that just like its predecessor warps lines between pop, world, jazz and rock music. Perhaps the key to their being a band to watch has to do with its sophisticated and unusual mix of harmonics with grooves and the unexpected. The music on Get Naked gives a sense of trust and ease among the performers as they find a balance between playfulness and restraint. That also makes for a beautiful journey. “ - Nenad Georgievski – www.allaboutjazz.com
