About the album
The source of Alexej Malakhau’s inspiration is hardly to be defined, as it reaches from classic to modern. This stylistic diversity grants his sensitive compositions expressive freedom.
Alexej’s delicate artistic expression is reflected by the sound of the project L E I B L I C H, which literally translates to bodily or corpoal. Gentle nostalgia, a hint of romance, embedded in tender melancholy, combined with the urge to cross borders, characterize his diverse creations.
Alexej Malakhau was born and raised in Minsk and now lives and works in Cologne, Germany.
He played with various orchestras in Belarus and Germany, among them the Youth Jazz Orchestra Minsk, the National Orchestra of Belarus and the BuJazzO (Youth Jazz Orchestra Germany) lead by Peter Herbolzheimer. Furthermore, Alexej Malakhau took part in several jazz festivals, such as Minsk Jazz, Cologne Jazz Night, Leverkusener Jazztage, Jazz Rally Düsseldorf, jazzOUT! Heerlen, Jazztage Ingolstadt, Moerser Jazztage, Jazz Festival Gronau and Generations Frauenfeld.
