JAVVA is an energetic mix of post-punk, afrobeat mixed with the very best of the 70's and 80's era.

They look like four Pablo Escobars and they sing, among others, about the slow decay of our planet.

JAVVA is a band formed by four well known Polish musicians that have the experience regarding various genres and fields of musical activity over the past two decades. Each of JAVVA members have different approach on modern rhythm-based rock music.

Combined with electronics, retro aesthetics inspired by the seventies and eighties, raw punk energy and groovy attitude it brings the music of JAVVA close to avant-rock / post-punk / afro-beat territories but taking these genres rather frivolously and as a starting point for further exploration.

The debut album called Balance of Decay is devoted mostly to technological, social and environmental crisis that humanity witnesses at the end of the second decade of XXI century.

Balance of Decay has been released on September 6th 2019 for Polish audiences only and on October 11th 2019 for the rest of the world.

JAVVA is a band formed by four Polish musicians that have the experience regarding various genres and fields of musical activity. Each of JAVVA members have different approach on rhythm-based music and therefore it infuses the melodic themes of their compositions with polyrhythmic foundations inspired by musical traditions from all around the world. Combined with raw energy and groovy attitude it brings the music of JAVVA close to avant-rock / post-punk / afro-beat territories but taking these genres rather frivolously and as a starting point for further exploration.

The project was initiated by Bartek Kapsa - drummer of such bands as Something Like Elvis (with which he succeeded touring around the world, sometimes supporting such bands as Fugazi or NoMeansNo), Contemporary Noise Sextet, Helatone or Tropy. He is also the co-founder of Electric Eye Records.

Bartek invited Mikołaj Zieliński to collaboration. Mikołaj is a guitarist and bassist best known from the family of related bands called Alameda Organisation, with which he released 5 albums at Instant Classic label. Alongside the other JAVVA member - Łukasz Jędrzejczak, who is responsible for vocals, keys, elecronics and percussions - he is also member of T'ien Lai group which played for example at such festivals as: CTM (Berlin), Phono (Odense), Luminato (Toronto), Rokolectiv (Bucharest), Art Meetings (Dnipro), SKIF (St. Petersburg), Unsound (Kraków) or Open'er (Gdynia).

The fourth member of JAVVA is Piotr Bukowski - guitarist and synthesizer player who is also the founder and c0-fiunder of bands like Hokei, Duży Jack, Xenony or Stwory as well as multimedia project called TUTAJ.

The first album of JAVVA called Balance of Decay is devoted mostly to technological, social and enviromental crisis that humanity witnesses at the end of the second decade of XXI century. The dance rhythms and melodies are being blended with bitter lyrics that portray different mundane problems and general unwelness of modern mankind.

Balance of Decay has been released on September 6th 2019 for Polish audiences only and on October 11th 2019 for the rest of the world.
