Nikola Bankov from Slovakia is among the most talented young performers in Europe. An alto saxophonist, composer and conceptualist, he is only 24 years old and has already won prestigious music awards and is on Forbes magazine's "30 under 30" list. His latest album, “Dream Chaser”, was co-produced with legendary trumpeter Randy Brecker, who says "his music defies categories, having its own sub-genre somewhere between jazz, funk, rock and grunge."
This is music for a new generation that inspires and excites with a mix of jazz, rock and electronic elements. His 2019 debut album "Bright Future" received one of the awards for "Best Jazz Album of the Year" in Slovakia.
