duet AGATA Short Info

AGATA – is the music of experiences and hopes of a mature man, the music of varieties of fortune and turns of life, such as love and death, children and family, escape and life in exile, war, peace, joy and sorrow.
The uniqueness and novelty of the project lies in interaction of its specific vocal and instrumental lines. Vocal line is traditional, almost ritual; it preserves authentic dialects, archaic harmonies and manner. Instrumental line combines the authors’ performing style and techniques of modern musical styles (neoclassical, avant-garde, neominimalizm).
Ultraarchaic and ultramodernity are brought together in the project by acknowledged and thoughtful attitude (attention) to each sound, special value of the sound and the context, forming the context by unexpected harmonic and arrangement techniques. The accordion and the vocal coexist in different tonal and rhythmic plans that create a polyphonic effect and give more autonomy to the parties.
AGATA - is a collaborative project of two Belarusian musicians, Irena Kotvitskaya and Alexey Vorsoba. Both of them are leaders of musical projects which are widely known inside and outside Belarus. Alexey Vorsoba – is an accordionist, composer and arranger, he is working within modern music techniques and philosophy. He is the leader of instrumental trio “Port Mone”, member of different international art projects, and the author of music for numerous films, animations, performances. Irena Kotvitskaya – is an ethno singer, composer, teacher and ethnomusicologist. Since 2006 Irena has been an author and leader of Ethno-NHS and Akana-NHS projects. Hers are the unforgettable vocals and arrangements for Kazalpin (Belarus-Switzerland, the label Double Moon Records ) and Diagilew Project (the patronage of the mayor's office in Bonn, Germany).
