This Czech duet combines saxophone and Australian didgeridoo, but to say so is too plain description as for the Deši. It’s about a real dialogue between wood and metal, folk and professional European music tradition, man and woman. The project breaks the frameworks of jazz, funk and ethnic music. One more Deši’s peculiarity is hidden in their approach to the harmony. Unlike other bands using didg only as a rhythmic instrument, like percussion, Deši’s didgeridoo is a full participant of composition as it interacts with the winds and strings at the timbre and tonal levels and therefore completes a comprehensive dialogue between melody and breath.


Here it is said about different didgeridoos as Lukáš Pilnaj who studied in Europe, India and Great Britain is a well-known maker of overtone instruments, and he takes a real collection of his own creations for the gigs. Eva Žižkovská prefers a baritone saxophone and clarinet.


The Ukrainian audience is familiar with the duet as they performed at the ArtPole’2012. This year we prepare a new edition of the festival and in the same time take up the baton of the Deši’s tour for you to recall the unforgettable atmosphere of the music feast in Unizh. So we call you for the next 5-day art non-stop. Welcome the Deši in March :)
