Yegor Zabelov is one of the most distinctive accordionists in Eastern Europe: he is a composer, author of music for theater performances and films. Zabelov’s music can be described as an experimental mixture of accordion, avant-garde, jazz and neoclassical sounds. After performing throughout Europe in a duet Gurzuf, Yegor focused on his solo career. He draws inspiration for his compositions from such minimalist classics as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Michael Nyman, as well as Arvo Pärt, Finnish experimental accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen and the jazz trio Esbjörn Svensson Trio.
Yegor began his musical education at the age of seven. In 2002 he became a laureate of the International Competition of Folk Musicians of Belarus. He began composing at the age of 20, when he studied at the Higher School of Music. While successfully pursuing academic music, he became interested in various musical genres, as a result of which he began working on projects with other Belarusian bands. Yegor Zabelov has been performing in Europe since 2009.
