Drazek/Fuscaldo (formerly Mako Sica) is the dynamic, freeform duo of Przemyslaw Krys Drazek (electric trumpet, mandolin, electric guitar) and Brent Fuscaldo (vocals, electric bass, harmonica, thumb piano, gong, percussion).
Since they formed in early 2007, they have appeared on releases by Feeding Tube Records, Astral Spirits, Instant Classic, La Société Expéditionnaire, Permanent, BLW BCK, Slow Knife, Plus Tapes, as well as National Public Radio's syndicated program, Radio M.
Their collaborations with various instrumentalists include master percussionist Hamid Drake, bassist Tatsu Aoki, Mark Shippy (US Maple, Shorty), Thymme Jones (Cheer Accident, Brise-Glace), Grażyna Auguścik, Mark Feldman, Tyler Damon, Jacob Fawcett, Michael Kendrick, Chaetan Newell, Marcin Dymiter, Maciej Morus, and George Marich.
Drazek/Fuscaldo's entrancing and improvisational sound weaves moody guitars with primal vocals evoking meditative and transcendental vibes that won their Ronda LP a spot in Downbeat Magazine's 2018 top-rated albums.
It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine had this to say after their Ourania release: "There’s mystery and there’s magic encrypted in these five long tracks."
