OTAVA YO
OTAVA YO
Russia

Otava Yo turns Russian folk songs into powerful dance music, a new Russian Beat. The band can take great concert halls by storm with their Slavic temperament and fire. . . an authentic example of what will happen if a classical Russian Ivan gets into a groove. A group of professional folk musicians in St. Petersburg, Russia, spontaneously formed Otava Yo in 2005. They wanted to create new interpretations of Russian folk music, accessible to all audiences. Some call them "modern buffoons" while others describe the music as "communal flat groove". Both are true. See them at MJR on Friday night - a huge dose of dance and humour guaranteed!
