The latest pairing of the Double W series traces the interplay between pop and folk music and acoustic and electronic sounds. Oi Va Voi were founded in London in 1999 and began recording music inspired by Hungarian and Yiddish folk music. Their first album was an international sensation: Laughter Through Tears won the Edison Prize in the Netherlands and the BBC Radio 3 World Music Prize and reached second place in the 2003 World Music Charts Europe. In Hungary too, the group has achieved n...otable success, partly because they have worked regularly with two Hungarian singers, Juci Németh and Ági Szalóki. In 2015 - in a partially re-organised line-up - the band began work on a new album, Memory Drop, which was eventually released in 2018. Just like most Oi Va Voi albums, a remarkable female singer received a starring role. This time it was Zohara Niddam, who is of Israeli origin and also appears in the group's concerts, breathing new life into their classic hits.
Mónika Miczura, well known from the cult group Ando Drom, released her first solo album at the beginning of the 2000s. While she has always been fascinated by the traditions of Hungarian Roma - her roots go back to Rajasthan in India - Mónika is also open to contemporary electronic trends. She assembled a group around her who have helped her move beyond the musical and stylistic boundaries of Gypsy music. They became Mitsoura, first performing together in 2003 before releasing the album Dura Dura Dura in 2008. After a hiatus of several years - when Mónika, among other things, collaborated with the Tunisian artist Jawhar - the band reformed last year with the flame still burning, combining Indian and North African themes with their Eastern European Gypsy music traditions.
