„The Universal Language - music - is made up of many dialects. Bodek Janke is a master of more musical dialects than anyone I can think of and on his new CD „global.dance.kulture“ Bodek tells a joyous music story by combining the world's musics in a personal and sophisticated way. Enjoy the journey.“
- JOHN RILEY, musician/educator


„As I am listening through Bodek's new CD a part of me is feeling amazed to observe the changing expressions of different moods on my face. My mind is filled with joy and satisfaction and I am offering a warm embrace to my dear disciple (although not yet officially initiated). The transitions are so smooth and obvious that it didn't even occur to me that these were 17 separate tracks. At a deeper level these, to me, reflect the transitions I have seen in Bodek in the last few significant years of our acquaintance. The CD is the journal of a journey through different experiences of his life. Ultimately, Bodek doesn't make music for himself alone, his music is for the universe. It embraces the cosmos with an appeal for any thing receptive to such vibrations. It transcends technicalities, it transcends average human perception. Each and every sound, movement are blended and justified to perfection. It brings blissful tears to my eyes.“

“Bodek is making his own rules as he goes along and that´s a good way to go.”

The polish - born Bodek Janke is one of the most exceptional young musicians of the current Jazz and World Music scenes. Based in New York City, he is a cultural commuter between the USA, Kazakhstan, Russia, Poland and Germany.
With his playing, Janke creates a new, distinctive style, merging drumset with a wild variety of instruments and drawing upon African, Indian, Eastern European and Latin American music traditions. He plays World Music with a jazz attitude and Folk Music with a contemporary language. And, above all, this “shaman’s” energetic and expressive performances and compositions captivate every audience.

An event that touches you to the bone.
- Stan Kelberg, ‘Forum’ 24/II, New York 2006)
