Skety are a vocalist band made up of young professional Czech jazz singers and musicians. There are many a capella ensembles, but Skety manage something unique - they are made up of musicians who are actively and fully engaged in the contemporary scene. As each member also fronts their own projects including solo and big band appearances, their singing together is a rich and much loved platform for all of them. Inspired both by contemporary world and Czech classical composers, they aim to bring the music they love to life.
