Mauricio met later an Italian guy, Simone Dordoni in a secondhand shop. He was looking for a music note stand and used to play guitar in a band in Bergamo, Italy. They arranged a session and began to create songs and a story… the story of Jëkoff.
His real name is Jëkoff Sedofski. A mystical man from the 70s who moved from ancient Russia to Latin America crossing Europe and different linguistic regions. A jagged versatile man who is engaged with music and video.
Jëkoff’s stories are illustrated in their songs, like biking in Zürich (Passegiatta -en Bicicleta), his trip to Mexico through (El Paso), stories of Argentinian redhead girlfriend (She said no) or secret escapes to Berlin (Perversa).
After playing live including covers of Joy Division and The Cure they recorded in 2012 their first Demo, Mi Mundo, in Tiger’s Studio.
In 2016, following DIY philosophy, they recorded single El Paso in Jëkoff's own Studio, La Cueva, where keyboard and zampoña sounds where added.
Finally in 2017 after 2 years of work, they finished first full length Album, Basurolo. They recorded, created artwork and printed CDs by themselves. Nevertheless, it was mix and master for them remotely by Peruvian sound engineer, Chinen el Saito.
