Guitarist & composer David Golek is active in the Jazz scene as well as in World-music groups. His personal recognisable style and music language suit a wide range of musical directions.

David has always been first and foremost interested in expressing his own musical identity, inspired by his roots & life journey.
Having a classical and jazz music education, living in different parts of the world and speaking several languages, was a base to always want to widen his musical horizons & perspective on one side, and connect to his roots on the other, which in his case is not a trivial question.

After years of studying classical piano David switched to Guitar which he learned on his own for several years, till he decided to join higher music education focusing on jazz & improvisation. Besides his own projects, David is involved with various groups, as a sideman, from straight-ahead to modern jazz ,Ethnic and World-music oriented groups, to collaboration with modern dance projects and film. David's own music would be a cross-road of all these experiences, including Jewish and middle eastern influences, as well as film music.

David has played concerts or recorded with a range of outstanding musicians, among others with with Benny Bailey, Ravi Coltrane, Lonnie Smith, Walter Blending, Wycliff Gordon, Ron Westray, Arnie Lawrence , Philip Harper, Dale Barlow, Michael Moore, Gary Smulyan, Dick oats, Franck Amsallem, Simin Tander, Ferdinand Povel, John Ruocco, Anthony Cox, Alex Coke, Eli degibri, Avishai Cohen, Dmitry Shapko, Nelson Latif, Ana Beck, Jimmy Omonga, Odrey Shakir, Maria Jose Ortiz and many more.
