Psychedelic pop and trip-hop with a downtempo acoustic feel, AKA Neomi enticingly toys around with catchy melodies, lyrical texts and dreamy vocals. A talented group of musicians – known in their home country Slovenia simply as Neomi – kicked off 2020 with the release of their new album Beautiful Disasters, reminding us that life flies by so quickly.
ANA KRAVANJA & SAMO KUTIN
15 JAN, 21:40 @ ESNS 04 Channel
Ana Kravanja and Samo Kutin are two thirds of the internationally celebrated band Širom, who together they have been a mainstay of the creative music scene in Slovenia as well. In this tandem they blend the hurdy gurdy, plucked string instruments, tambura, brač and çifteli with acoustic resonators, viola, violin and Ana’s voice. On their 2020 album Cumulus Spores they place each note exactly where it belongs, to create songs that recall ancient fairy tales.

Etceteral is a vehicle for the exploration of repetitive polyrhythmic electro-acoustic music, for which the Slovenian trio draws upon influences from Krautrock and Afro-Futurism. The group is made up of saxophonist Boštjan Simon, drummer Marek Fakuč and visual artist Lina Rica. Their purpose is to create a propulsive rhythmic feel by forging an intricate symbiosis between one synth, two acoustic instruments and interactive visuals.
