"We're offering you a trip.
Let's take the last train from Paris to experience a sensory crossing through Nice, Andalusia, Maghreb, Cameroon...
To the imaginary city of Sotolongo.
Each place: a spirit, a feeling, a new rhythm.
The journey nourishes the soul and reveals to us the richness and plurality that surround us.
We are ready to travel.
Are you going with us?"
“Ready to travel” is a warm, nourishing album that is rich in style and has that feel-good factor about it that just oozes class. Every tune has something delightful about it and I have found myself pressing the play button again and again on this one. Very enjoyable music indeed."

Siks Haedo was born in 2013. Its musical world is the result of a need of emotional expression, a search for personal sound and a variety of inspirations ranging from jazz to classical and African music.
Its conception began in Madrid a year earlier with the beginning of the work of composing the repertoire. The prospect of a change of life via the installation in Paris gives rise to many inspirations in Diego Lipnizky. These influences are reflected in his style of composition. They are reflected in simple and singing lyrical melodies, modern harmonies, improvised passages and rhythmic variations, displacements and modulations.
After only 2 years, SIKS HAEDO managed to convince the public and show business professionals with its first album "Influencias" during the 15th edition of the Festival de Jazz of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
This recognition confirms the guitarist's commitment to producing a second album "Ready to travel" in the colours of the metropolitan diversity that is the city of Paris. An eclectic journey from jazz to classical music and African music, Siks Haedo has already been programmed several times at Sunset/Sunside, Baiser Salé, Caveau des Oubliettes, Les disquaires and Le Royal Est Music Club.
Selected to participate in the JazzEñe 2015 Workshop in Valencia (Spain) in September 2015.
