Ukrainian pianist, singer, composer and journalist Kateryna Ziabliuk comes from Kyiv and has studied in Katowice, Krakow and Milan. She is now-a-days based in Poland/Italy. Raised in a family of artists and, surrounded by various directions of art, started playing the piano and singing at the age of six. She is one of the most promising figures of the Ukrainian music scene. In her work, she uses the language of modern jazz, but at the same time, does not hesitate to use elements of traditional Ukrainian music and explore the cultural heritage of her homeland.
Ziabliuk collaborated with the Balkan folk band Kriva Drina, where she played the accordion, sang and co-created the arrangements. She also performed, among others, with Kamila Drabek and Patrycja Wybranczyk - members of the O.N.E Quartet, one of the most interesting phenomena of the Polish jazz scene of the last decade. She has made numerous appearances all over Europe, which she intensified in the face of the Russian aggression against Ukraine, by choice acting as the "cultural ambassador" of Ukraine in the Western world.
In addition, she is a co-founder and editor of the Meloport, where she publishes her texts devoted to improvised music, and former art director of Contra Jazz Club, which, despite its short existence, was an educational open stage for young Ukrainian musicians, where they could experiment with new projects, share her knowledge and network.
