Feeling a bit camera shy


Active Element is a Canadian Jazz/Rock/Fusion band, formed in 2010 in Toronto, Ontario. The band was originally formed as JAM-trio by Leonard Levi (Guitar), Slava Smirnov (Bass), and Alex Fokanoff (Drums). Active Element went through a small number of drummer changes in 2012, achieving its present form when Vadim Shubin replaced Alex Fokanoff. Apart from the new drummer, 2 new members joined: Alex Chekalev (Sax) and Kirill Shirokov (Keyboards). This latest addition drastically changed the sound of the band and brought it to another level of musical performance. Active Element was formed as a live music project targeted to popularize Jazz/Rock/Fusion music amongst all ages and various styles audiences (Classic Rock, Jazz, Funk, etc.). The current band repertoire includes famous tunes of great Jazz-Rock/Fusion musicians/bands such as Billy Cobham, Simon Phillips, Brian Bromberg, Chick Corea, Frank Gambale, Weather Report, Tribal Tech, Dave Weckl Band, etc... revised and arranged in different POV. Along with this live project some band members are working on their own studio projects.
