Lubos Andršt is a versatile musician whose work incorporates the influences of European classical music as well as those of ethnic idiom.
At the beginning of his professional career, Luboš Andršt found himself facing a crossroads others had passed through before him: he could go his own way, maintaining artistic independence as much as possible or take the easy way out by travelling the more popular road for greater profit in the steady, but less creative, circles of the local pop scene. Luckily for his audience, he chose the first path.
Throughout his career he has worked consistently with numerous Czechoslovak jazz and rock icons and various notable musicians from abroad, performing on several occasions with world famous bluesman B.B. King, as well as Toto Blanke, Ignatz Netzer, Dana Gillespie, Tadeusz Nalepa, Paul Jones, Katie Webster or Tonya Graves.
