Despite his age he actively collaborates with world-famous players such as Ulf Wakenius, Justin Faulkner, Tineke Postma and Gergo Borlai. Kirill Yakovlev is a skilled crossover guitarist and composer well-known from his previous project CIRILIC, but also from many projects where he performs as sideman. This duo cooperates with highly in-demand European drummers such as Utsi Zimring and Petr Nohavica. Balancing between piano and organ; guitar, duduk and balalaika; drums, exotic percussion and electronics; Organism seeks to create unforgettable music textures and powerful rhythms. Inspired by world music, americana, ambient, blues and jazz traditions, Organism pioneers a new synthesis of genre and sound in the organ trio paradigm. Their debut album “The New Beginning” was released in July 2020 under Austrian label Alessa Records and presents 11 original compositions of both protagonists.
