Topoľana is a London based jazz/folk fusion sextet playing compositions inspired by Slovak folk. I am the band leader and I writes most of the music, taking inspiration from songs I grew up with. The band consists of top up-and-coming young jazz musicians on the London scene.
We have been playing together since 2016, have gigged in and around London, toured Slovakia & Czech Republic and in June, we have a wonderful tour coming up, at the end of which we will be recording out debut album! Come and say hi at one of our shows:)
