Oleg and Simone played for the first time together in festival Mundial – Tilburg – 2008. Since 2009 they perform as a Duo mixing their experiences into a new musical combination: Balkan and Braziliaan. Between Brazil and Moldavia the duo creates a musical bridge. Living in Holland and sharing different artistic expressions, the Duo develops their own compositions (instrumental and songs ) inspired in traditional Russian/Moldavian/Brazilian blended with world, jazz and classical music. Oleg plays the Bayan – Russian accordeon -, sings old gipsy songs and russian composers. Simone plays Brazilian and world percussion, bringing a variation of sounds into her drum/percussion set up, singing in her percussive way . The repertoire is a result of this encounter : 7 years playing together in Brazil and Europe exploring and creating their own style – a combination of two different musical worlds becoming “ONE OTHER MUSIC”.
