ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alex Kiskachi, a musician, singer and songwriter, is well known not only in his hometown, but also far beyond the Southern California scene where he regularly performs with his band or solo unplugged.

Alex’s music fuses the gloom yet self-irony and raunchiness of blues, the drive and madcapping of rock-n-roll, the pure emotion of latin rhythms. His lyrics are deeply metaphorical and filled with wordplay and symbolism, yet follow the best traditions of Russian poetic heritage. His musical influences encompass a wide range of seemingly eclectic sources: from the early 20th century Russian chansonnier Alexander Vertinsky to legendary Russian rock bands Aquarium and Auktyon, from Paul Simon to Tom Waits. Here’s what Alex says about his shows: “Concerto for winds, strings and freaky voices. Music for emotional men with a sense of rhythm. Lyrics for intelligent women with a sense of humor.”

A lot of outstanding musicians have played and currently play in his band. One of the permanent members of Kiskachi Band is Leo Chelyapov, a well-known saxophone and clarinet player, who played with the legendary Russian band “Brigada S” and Zhanna Aguzarova. He is currently a leader of the Los Angeles-based klezmer orchestra “Kings of Klezmer”.
