JonZ is an intimate optimistic duo, created during a musical journey of Jenia Vasilenko and Yoav Or.
On an isolated house on the Zamarin mountainside that rises above the Carmel mountains, they each begun writing alone. However, the desire for harmony and co-creation brought them to reassemble their lyrics and to integrate sounds and melodies into the beautiful songs we have today.
Powerful yet gentle folk songs, wrapped in an electronic soft blanket. Driven by the desire to integrate arts, the passion to experience cultures and absorb different sounds, the path of life JonZ chooses is very dynamic. A path that allows them to develop an eclectic language, to build their home wherever they are; forming the guideline and the essence of the band.
JonZ have performed in major festivals in Israel as well as in Europe (InDnegev, Haifa 100 live, Yearot Menashe, Colours of Ostrava, 3000grad). They toured South France (Rhône alpes) last winter, Germany and Czech Republic this past summer (Rosa Laub, Greenland) and have just been to Switzerland for the Songbird fest.
