All our albums are reflection of our feelings, surrounding people and nature:
1. Naked Noyz- experimenting with many different sounds, musical rules and rhythms.
2. Get Naked - call for all people to be naked-free
3. Nakedonia - our imaginary country, without politics, hate, bad feelings, violence… Only love, freedom, good feelings and music, nice girls, beautiful people-all are welcome to our Nakedonia - no passport needed
4. Yes - Just say Yes and good things will happen, not tomorrow, not yesterday…in 10,15 years from now, we don’t want to say that we missed opportunity, that we missed the moment. Grab it and make it your own unforgettable moment!
Our 5th album is going out on Spring 2020!
The name NAKED stays for open heart and uncovered soul. Ideas of freedom, hope and love have always inspired Serbian band NAKED to create music, firmly rooted in unique mix of traditional Balkan, global urban, swing, funk, undeniably beats, odd rhythms and free-jazz relishes. NAKED has started in 2007. Collaborating for over a decade, they have released four albums, performed around the world from Chile to Korea and at festivals like Colours of Ostrava, EXIT, Read See Jazz Festival, ACC festival, to name a few. A gypsy violin, saxophone and clarinet converse with the melody accompanied by a tight, upbeat bass and drum section. Together they generate a sense of updated-global-urbanism and accurate synergy by diversity, a natural crossover of swing, funk, trippy psychedelic dub, classical music with flashes of the Mediterranean and African, Eastern European traditions as well as bebop, odd-rhythm and free-jazz. All About Jazz website calls their music a labour of love, describing the band as a mesmerising unit and a collective whose musical syntax continues to suggest that there are not several musicians here, but one.
