Iva Nova // St. Petersburg
In Kooperation mit Karman e.V.
The ladies of IVA NOVA were inspired by the Slavic folk music, but they gave it a personal touch. A rather wild touch, we might add. Don’t expect traditional Russian folk, these ladies rock a little too hard for that. But when the two lead singers do some harmonies, they make one think of Vartinna. Their sonic expression is girlish and playful, yet feminine and proud. And if the accordion player picks up accordion, she can make you dream of the Russian countryside. But when one of the singers picks up her guitar, she brings you right back to the big city.
