Golonka + Anya Anastasia

Golonka + Anya Anastasia
Making beautiful music with a wild gypsy heart, Golonka breathes fresh life into the folk music of Eastern Europe. Their songs speak of the stars and the moon, of pussycats and preachers, of love and death – and their live shows are sweet, menacing and danceable in equal doses!

Anya Anastasia’s new music is a powerful blend of dark folk, and sparse Nordic electronica.

Anya’s soft rich low vocals which flick up to butterfly-like high-notes, paint stark vivid imagery with stirring melodies, somewhere between Cat Power and Sigur Rós. The vocals are welded to a base of hypnotically droning synths, driving basslines and West-African inspired guitar licks.
