The female trio has always been inspired by a quality often present in folklore music. The quality of expressing deep-felt emotions, coming from the guts, real and raw. This gives rise to a shared experience where musicians and listeners together are soaked in a sensation that goes beyond words and talks straight to the body. This is what happens in small cafés or village squares or living rooms, where people dance and sing for each other, where passion is more important than skill, where music is catharsis and celebration at the same time and where it is consumed and shared, not as a commercial artifact, but as a basic human experience, that goes way back in time.
Their first album ‘S O A K E D’ (out on the 7th of November), combines the flesh, the seeds, the skin, lyrics and melodies that poured out of their inner landscapes, the strange, fierce, and soft corners of them. It is the fruit of more than a year of creation, soaking in fears, in sorrows and joys, speaking out their minds, taking a stance and taking space, being bold, powerful and vulnerable.
