Jednota (this time consisting of ][, Cáry mlhy, Letmo Productions, MarastMusic.com & Naše koncerty) brings Canadian duo Nadja back to Prague after 3 years.
At this gig, they will be accompanied by another, special duo consisting of violin master Daniel Meier and drone aficionado Václav Dobiáš (aka Sweeps 04) with just their second public show so far.
Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist Leah Buckareff which formed in 2003. Nadja creates music that has been described as ambient doom, dreamsludge, and metalgaze, combining the atmospheric textures of shoegaze and ambient music with the heaviness and volume of metal and noise. Nadja have released numerous recordings on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Hydrahead Records, Important Records, Essence Music, and their own label, Broken Spine Productions. The duo has toured and performed extensively around the world, appearing at such diverse festivals as SXSW, FIMAV, Roadburn, and Unsound.
In addition to Nadja, Baker is also active as a writer, a solo musician, and with the group projects Caudal, B/B/S/, Adoran, Hypnodrone Ensemble, and Whisper Room. He has released many solo albums and is the author of four collections of poetry. Buckareff is also the owner/operator of Coldsnap Bindery, a production house of handmade books, and Pulp Papier, a distributor of Japanese paper. She is also the curator of The Wunderkabinet, a wandering exhibition of art, craft, and curios, and The Lesen Lounge, a mobile zine library,
Originally from Toronto, Canada, the duo now resides in Berlin, Germany.
