”It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop”
We’ve been working hard in 2018, so you could enjoy new music in 2019. My second quartet CD is going to be released on the 25th of January and I’m so proud to present it on one of the best Jazz Labels in Germany – Traumton Label. I’ve started writing music in 2017 in Switzerland, Bern and continued producing in Germany, Cologne and Bonn.
Very grateful to everybody, who was involved in the process – Nico Raschke, recording, mixing and mastering, Taisija Chernishova- a multi-talented person, who did my photos, Denis Hölscher and Florian Favre for CD design and of course my band – Sebastian Scobel, Jakob Kühnemann and Dominik Mahnig for enormous patience and willing to do their best.
More information about CD coming soon, but you can already take a look here.
We had a great fun during our tour in Pakistan with the band – Kusimanten!
Here is some short presentation about the music I do, made by Lina Siekmann, Miriam and Christian. Many thanks to Stadt Köln and Horst und Gretl Will Stipendium for making this real. It’s an honour, which I appreciate very much!
Upright is slightly out of tune, but it’s real 😉
What an amazing review of the new CD by duo Lit! Many thanks to Uli Lemke!
”The boundless vocal fantasies of the Odessa native from Cologne, her impressive percussive onomatopoeia and her playful joke find a counterpart in the art of the drummer, which acts as an atmospheric projection screen, a roaring counterpart as well as an equal partner in dialogue. The change from composed themes to improvised dialogue succeeds completely effortlessly and excitingly, and so confidently wanders the duo of wide-ranging soundscapes to surprisingly song-like themes, that one would like to celebrate here a discovery of the year.”

Although this song was written long ago, it was never recorded. So I thought it’s a good time to freeze it in digital waves and vibrations. Hope you enjoy!
This song is a dedication to all those thousand and thousand years our souls have been thought.Lest we forget how connected and strong together we are.
What a nice review from last quartet Concert in Bonn! Many thanks to Thomas Kliemann!
Stationen einer Weltreise
“…So intensiv und expressiv wühlte sich Lukasheva durch das Liedmaterial. Die zierliche 29-Jährige aus Odessa, die seit 2010 in Köln lebt, ist ein Energiebündel und wahres Stimmwunder. Und sie hat die Männer ihres Quartetts – ja, das ganze Pantheon – im Griff. Mit Autorität, Charme und dieser hohen Stimme, die sich wie ein Drillbohrer ins Hirn setzt und einen wilden Tanz, mal einschmeichelnd und weich, mal rau, aggressiv und schrill aufführt…”
