Description

Ladi Smigura featuring Karel Ruzicka
ladimusic.com | karelruzickajr.com

Ladi Smigura is a boutique classical pop and crossover violinist and music producer. Born and raised in the Czech Republic’s traditional culture teeming with music and dances, he was always taking place on center stage. After School of Music in Bojkovice and Conservatory of Teplice, Ladi studied composition at the Academy of Music Arts in Prague, where his academic endeavors in music have been replaced by those in business, starting at the University of Economics, continuing at Charles University and graduating with MBA degree at Long Island University Post in New York.
He presents choreographed violin performances live and online from classical to dance music in original or cover form, as a solo musician or with top bands and DJs.

Saxophonist and composer Karel Ruzicka has developed a singular creative voice that arose from the many pivotal experiences of his life as a jazz artist.
Ruzicka permanently relocated to NYC in the spring of 1997 and his debut album "You Know What I Mean" which he released a few months later was nominated for a Czech Grammy. His second album “Spring Rolls Quartet” (1999) was awarded Czech Jazz Recording of the Decade. In 2004 Ruzicka released his third album “Brooklyn Moods” with Bruce Barth on piano, George Mraz on bass and Brandon Lewis on drums, which was also nominated for a Czech Grammy. In 2010 he has teamed up with Ondre J Pivec (organ) and Russell Carter (drums) to form the CPR Electrio. Their debut album was released in 2013 and reveals a deeply creative exploration of groove-based modern jazz and was also nominated for the jazz album of the year. In October 2018 Karel released his new quartet recording "Grace and Gratitude" with Jon Cowherd on piano, John Patitucci on bass and Nate Smith on drums.
