About the artist
Award-winning alto saxophonist Nikola Bankov, described as “Bright young cat with fresh grooves“ – (ALL ABOUT JAZZ) is only 21 years old and he‘s truly pushing the boundaries of his instrument. Nikola originates from Slovakia and is currently studying at The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark.
His debut album ‘Bright Future’ emerges as Nikola’s definitive statement, merging inspiring and catchy melodies with a refreshingly original sound. The album features world-renowned tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake (USA). Bankov experiments with a range of FX effects applied to the sound of the saxophone, adding a new set of colours to the musical palate.
Nikola Bankov Band (SK,DK) is an international modern jazz group of 5 musicians, based in Aarhus, Denmark, lead by young saxophonist Nikola Bankov. The rest of the band is made up of some of the best young and high-in-demand musicians in Denmark.
