A virtuous classic violinist with a predilection for Eastern European gipsy music; a jazz violinist experienced when it comes to punk rock; an accordionist, master of improvisation, with the rhythms of the Balkans running in his blood, and a bassist who likewise feels at home be it in symphony orchestras, jazz combos, or funk bands…
Founded in 2007, Uwaga! pleasurably steps across any borderline seperating genres. By doing so, their acoustic crossover repertoire reflects the individual focus of each of the four musicians. Yet, these focuses conflated, and over the years, a very unique sound emerged somewhere in between classical music, jazz, gipsy music and modern pop.
This is what provides worldwide successes of Uwaga! for years already: Exuberant musicality and stylistic open-mindedness.
Uwaga!, meanwhile for more than ten years, refines the concerted vision of a music without borderlines. Showing undampered diligence, they create music that makes people happy, sets out directly for their hearts, and makes their legs move.
The ensemble ‘s multi layered sound is orchestral as well as percussive. They perform as a quartet, but also with renowned symphony orchestras from Germany.
