Kak Budda - Deti Picasso
The Moscow based Deti Picasso plays an unusual sort of music in Russia - head-spinning and sharp, with strong ethnic roots, psychodelia and hypnotic energy. Very expressive female vocals, transparent guitar music and a soft cello sound are mixed with rough psychedelic tunes. Ancient Armenian chants and songs recorded with the academic string quartet blend with new forms of guitar sound. The music is very fresh, original, extraordinary and captivatingly sincere. At the centre of the band is Gaya Arutyunyan - one of the most original singers of the Russian rock scene. Gaya's voice is not operatic, smooth, or even attractive. It is jagged, nervous and urgent. In 2004 Deti Picasso made their public appearance with Armenian folk dance songs combined with heavy guitar themes and innovative modern rock music. Their second album, "Ethnic Experiments" became one of the best examples of the rising contemporary Eastern European rock scene. "Ethnic Experiments", in Armenian, is the type of album release that happens once every few years. It startles you and makes you think, by going deeper into the approach than what is usually presented in a simple folk song. From that time on, the band's art brings together 2 streams: the Moscow club and Armenian folk cultures. No wonder Deti Picasso won the warm acclaim of audiences and became one of the most respected bands of the Moscow club scene. As a result of their domestic success, they were invited to play in the biggest festivals and clubs in France, Belgium, Portugal, Hungary, Austria, Croatia, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania and the Czech Republic. Among the most important are Festival "Musicas do Mundo" in Portugal, "Sziget" festival in Hungary, "Rock for People" Festival in the Czech Rep., "Fete de la Musique" in France and more.
