Itaca Short Info

Itaca, thats Lo Selbo and Ossi Viola producing and performing their timeless italophone pop music. Their unique sound is influenced by italian cantautori of the 70s (Battisti, Battiato, Dalla), Europop of the 80s (Yazoo, Human League, Depeche Mode) and psychedelic Artpop of the 2000s (The Knife, Animal Collective). Itaca play their live shows since 2013, mostly in Italy, but from time to time also in their native town of Berlin.

Sounds like: “vediamo il cielo ruotare, come un vinile”

Biography:
Ossi Viola (Rome) and Lo Selbo (Berlin) sing the odyssey. Lo Selbo met Ossi for the first time in the local church of Rome’s Portonaccio quarter. Back then, Ossi was studying and singing sacral music, this particular day in April she was part of the second choir singing the Matthews passion. Lo Selbo in turn came to Rome to finish his not yet published biography of Lucio Battisti. A little later, Ossi and Lo were a couple and began to sing together in Itaca. Itaca is a greek island. Ossi says, that when she hears about Greece these days, she feels panic and has to lie down without moving for at least 5 minutes. They both like the works of Mina and Franco Battiato. But Ossi doesnt understand how Lo can be fascinated by Al Bano and Romina.
