Oswaldovi is a Czech-Italian duo formed by Andrea Rottin and Kateřina Malá. Two voices, electric guitar, minimalist drums set-up and bass synth lines. Their sound is a blend of psychedelic rock, both American 1930s and Tuareg blues, South European folklore and spaghetti western soundtracks. The use of voices is a research for balance between vocal experimentation and a traditional choral singing approach.
Their newest work is called Songs About Persecution. The record is inspired by the events in the lives of people who lived in and migrated to or through southern Europe and former Austria-Hungary since the beginning of 20th Century until nowadays. People who did it, because they were being persecuted or because of other power games menacing their existences.
Opening and accompanying the concert they propose a projection of a work by Scentographers (Sara Montin and Paolo Moretti), a project attempting to play, record and store memories of odor in digital videos.
