The wide–ranging concept of jazz, its fascination with rhythmic sequences and abstract vocals, experimentation, the constant search for new sounds and the fusion of cultures, is the gist of Zabelov Group’s approach to music and its presentation. Apart from live instruments, the duo uses synthesisers and other effects. But the key musical elements are the continuous spontaneity on stage and the shaping of momentary moods. What started as a feat of acoustic purism gradually became complex cinematic music interspersed with sound samples and acoustic instruments boosted by electronic devices. In 2020, Zabelov Group played a support set to the British Portico Quartet within the Prague Spectaculare Festival. In September 2020, the band released a live EP called Madhouse Session.
