Plants hide their roots (koreshki) to protect them from bad weather while their leaves (vershki) are directly affected by the constant changes in the weather. These two vital parts develop simultaneously but in opposite directions, thus maintaining the balance of the overall organism.  The group Vershki da Koreshki grew in the same way: the roots are formed by two descendants of ancient cultures of Africa (Senegal) and Central Asia (Tuva). The leaves are two compatriots from Saint Petersburg who are nourished by jazz, classical and contemporary music and improvisation.  The synthesis of these seemingly contradictory elements results in the band's great freedom of style and concept.  Vershki - vulnerable, striving, whimsical overground organs, parts of a body system, born by the root.  Koreshki - bosom, earthbound, archaic, primordial sources, roots.  'Vershki da Koreshki' began to grow in Amsterdam December 1994. 1989Levin left Leningrad. 1991in Amsterdam Levin met Volkov from Petersburg. 1994in Amsterdam Levin met Sylla from Dakar. 1996in Amsterdam Levin met Khovalyg from Tuva  So it has happened.
