DARIYA & Jazz Masters


In 2013 I created my own band consisting of piano, double bass, drums and saxophone. Our sound is a mix of soul, funk-shuffle and jazz.

The material is based on our version of famous jazz songs and my own compositions.



From 2011 to 2013 DARIYA collaborated with the band Orange Juice, now Oran Juzz. Together they performed such musical styles as funk, samba and bossa-nova, sometimes mixing it with pop-rock and blues.

From February 2012 til June 2013 DARIYA collaborated with a famous Russian bluesman Sergei Voronov, leader of the band Crossroadz.

DARIYA performed with him in some evening blues “Open G Jams” with friends Yuri Novgorodsky – guitar, Dmitry “Veteran” Chectnykh – bass, Michael Vladimirov – harmonica, Alexey “Lex” Blokhin – keys.
