Biography

Oficial Site: http://www.kazaky.com
Kazaky is a Ukrainian all-male synthpop dance group, made up of Kyryll Fedorenko, Artur Gaspar, Stas Pavlov and Oleg Zhezhel. Assembled in Kiev in 2010 by Zhezhel, a skilled choreographer, the group has released several singles and two albums (The Hills Chronicles - October 22, 2012 and I Like It (July 09, 2013)

Music:

Kazaky’s sound draws on house, synthpop, electronica and dance. Their tracks feature monotone, loopy, manipulated vocals and dance-driven, layered beats with electronic bleeps and prominent bass lines.

Style:
“Kazaky” is Ukrainian for “Cossacks”. The Cossacks had a very prominent role in the shaping of Ukraine’s national history and culture. However, the band claims that their name has nothing to do with the Cossacks, but that it is a derivative form of the Japanese word Kazaki, a popular first name in Japan. The group admits to being very inspired by Japanese culture.[4] All four members are trained dancers, and the group is famous for their elaborate, acrobatic and spectacular choreography routines, which feature perfectly synchronized and complex dancing moves executed on high heels. Artur Gaspar is especially known for his signature leg lift, which he often performs live and in videos. The group confronts gender norms by fusing masculine and feminine attributes together, most notably by regularly wearing stiletto heels in videos and live performances.
