Tara Fuki

Thursday, November 16 / V Klub / Nám. SNP 12
9pm / Concert / Tara Fuki (CZ/PL)

The duo Tara Fuki consists of:
Andrea Konstankiewiczová – cello, vocals, hang
Dorota Barová – cello, vocals

Both cellist have been playing music since they were children (conservatory, musicology studies, various musical projects), but it wasn't until their meeting in Brno in 2000 that the duo could come into existence... The music of Tara Fuki is quite unique (it is rooted in improvisations which are gradually becoming more and more intricate), delicately dynamic and incredibly rich expression-wise. Enriched by impressions of different musical styles and a taste of faraway places, their music creates a unique kaleidoscope of the feminine soul.
