At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows at OTO over the next seven days, we’re very pleased to host a three-day residency as a result of the OTO Projects UK Artists Residency Fund with Still House Plants– aka the Glasgow and South London-based collective made up of Finlay Clark, David Kennedy and Jessica Hickie-Kallenbach – following the release of their acclaimed new 12″ LP on bison records.

This week’s digital release is an extraordinary set from Zywizna; a collaborative project between two distinct voices in underground Polish music – Genowefa Lenarcik and Raphael Rogiński. With guitar and voice they re-realize traditional Kurpian folk songs within a new experimental context; making music that is as much about the past as it is about the possible future. Raphael returns solo on the 7th March for a night of solo guitar.

Full listings below. We look forward to seeing you here.

Before heading up to Counterflows festival, we were lucky to have new two piece Zywizna play an extraordinary set at OTO. Zywizna is a collaborative project between two distinct voices in underground Polish music – Genowefa Lenarcik and Raphael Rogiński. With guitar and voice they re-realize traditional Kurpian folk songs within a new experimental context; making music that is as much about the past as it is about the possible future. Raphael returns solo on the 7th March for a night of solo guitar.
