ethno jazz music


Music that gives off a scent of timber, pieces of rediscovered meadow converted into city traffic. Awakened at its springs with jazz and world music's origins, it slowly gains enlightenment during hard-built process of aiming for authenticity of contemporary meaning, of everyday experience.

T/Aboret is a single story told by four distinct voices. Originating from various musical spheres, the four express themselves in ethno jazz compositions, improvisations and rhythmical variations.

Polish background. Still, the language is modern and industrial, as it is based on wide, encompassing access to the surrounding reality. Reality compressed into one, common emotionality. Four people, thirteen instruments, one storyline

The band started working together in 2015 and really quickly builds its own fan base. In December T/Aboret received the 1st prize and the audience prize at the ‘Open Stage’ competition during XXV International Folk Music Festival ‘Mikołajki Folkowe’ for its cohesive sound, authenticity of music partnership and skillful use of traditional themes in jazz arrangements.
