REAL JAM (Russia)
The REAL JAM Group is a group of three attractive female vocalists and five talented male musicians from Russia, Moscow. The group was created in May, 2009. The REAL JAM is the winner of vocal competition Voice Dialing, participant of Usadba Jazz Arkhangelskoe Festival 2011, Swing Boom Festival 2011, Swing Boom Festival 2010. We are inspired by the style of American female vocal trios of the 1940s and 50’s and their precision, easy melody, and beautiful presentation. Performing as a trio, we revive traditions of old jazz. In Russia, this kind of music is not known enough. We want to share it with everyone! We chose jazz because this music gives a chance to show unusual paradoxes of harmony and rhythm, and gives us a way to simply rejoice in the world, life and music. Smoothness and flexibility is especially valuable in jazz. You can freely reconstruct a composition and state your thoughts using the language of music. Each song for us is a little performance, we also like to involve the audience into our show. We sing in different languages and our repertoire keeps expanding day by day. Now we work on our own songs in English and in Russian because we are full of desire to create something new and share with others.
