Gogi Dzodzuashvili alias Post Industrial Boys
Georgian poet/ composer Gogi Dzodzuashvili alias Post Industrial Boys creates subtle futuristic electronic ballads both swinging and meditative, along with live acoustic guitar. It's a mix of easy listening tunes and melodious spoken word vocals, revealing unique Georgian melancholy under the surface of the playful lightness.
In the last 12 years Gogi released 6 albums with various vocalists and wrote music for theater and film. Marika Asatiani is at the moment a resident artist at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. She will do a visual accompaniment to Gogi's musical performance and do vocals in a few songs.
“100% proof oddness from German Popov aka OMFO aka Our Man From Odessa. OMFO has been exploring the under-reported world of Central Asian musics since the beginning of the decade, achieving some fame with the inclusion of two tracks from his 2004 'Trans Balkan Express' LP on the Sascha Baron Cohen film, 'Borat'. For his thrird album 'Omnipresence' OMFO has tripped back to the steppes of his original homelands to record everything from traditional folk melodies to the restaurant bands of Tashkent and their tinny keyboards. If, like us you're infatuated with the Sublime Frequncies Radio series you'll get an exotic kick out of this”. (The Telegraph) The OMFO band includes German Popov (eletronics, flutes, vocals), Faiz Guzainov (violin, keyboards), Bakhtiyar Eybaliyev (percs, vocals), Dmytro Beloyartsev (buzuk, rabab), Gogi Dzodzuashvili (bass), Dejan Zaric (percussion).
