The Identity


Ellipsis Quintet is a prog-world-jazz project by Vasilis Nalbantis, consisting of five multitalented,
creative musicians with very different cultural backgrounds, who have already developed their own style and perhaps even their own sub-genre on their debut album "Avoid The Void". Metal, jazz, prog, fusion and much more, with traditional and folk music from all parts of the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean as a common denominator, unite to form an amalgam of sounds and emotions that transcends  forms and boundaries. With their second album “Aristotle’s Dilemma” they raise the bar even higher in terms of artistic, creative and production quality. They are not guided by short lived trends, but concentrate on music that remains true to a pure artistic vision and stands the test of time.

Origin: Graz, Austria
Genre: Prog world jazz
​Years active: since 2016

Our debut album ''Avoid the Void''

''...“Nevma” showcases Ellipsis Quintet’s exceptional ability to fuse the intricate arrangements of prog rock with the unexpected twists of jazz, creating a soundscape that is both superbly edgy and undeniably catchy'' 

                                                                                                                    - Will Lisil - Top Music News

''...a quintet that has found it’s path. The efforts of Vasilis and all the musicians came to fruition. After a lot of work they reached a genuine musical result of
special character and quality identity. High level of musicianship, sensitivity and ethos'' 

                                                                                                                    - Vasilis Rakopoulos

'' Artists In The Spotlight isn’t the type of music blog that rates music with stars or thumbs up or little pink pigs or whatever. But if we were, this album would receive so many stars that they wouldn’t fit on an A4 page of paper! Truly an exceptional piece of musical mastery.''
