Ľubomír Gašpar Cimbal Project

The author’s project of the dulcimer player Ľubomír Gašpar is based on connections with his friends – musicians whose domain is jazz. The combination of dulcimer and traditional jazz instruments such as piano, double bass and drums creates a remarkable symbiosis and a unique sound. Together they play original compositions and jazz adaptations of folk songs from different nations, as well as surprisingly sounding jazz classics. In 2016, they won a Czech competition called the Jazz Fruit Award (Prague, 2016) and won two other awards in the “New Faces of Slovak Jazz 2016” competition. Debut album “View” (2017) is another project by Ľubomír Gašpar, which integrates styles and genres from a new perspective, where the dulcimer, which is mostly used in folk music, is a central connecting element, whose stunning mastery is complemented by excellent jazz musicians. The album won the Rádio Awards 2017 for the best album in the world music category.
