While most people try to reach their goals in the easiest way possible, our bass player always finds something to make his life a little harder. This is why he's started playing the fretless bass! For those unfamiliar with this concept, a fretless instrument (like the violin, cello, double bass etc.) is harder to play due to the fact that you can go out of tune if you move your fingers even slightly.
When children play, they have their curiosity to base their enthusiasm on, when people build, they have their solid foundations to base their constructions on, when dreamers dream, they have their utopias upon which they create their world, and when Modiwo creates we have the musical score to base our ideas on.
Honestly, we the artists, musicians, don’t know much about business. Many of us start with flowers in our noses and many dreamy ideas about the world of music. Like any kid that comes into this world, at the beginning we are innocent and sweet and think that all we need to do is create good music and be nice and everything else will naturally take you up there where everybody will appreciate your gifts :) Let’s face it! We are not businessmen.
We are officially excited for the second time this summer :) We finished our Hello to the World video called ’Meet Modiwo’. So we invite you all to watch it and spread it around. We worked hard for it and we are happy to finally present it to you.
There is a big resemblance between kids and musicians and the proof of it is that dictionaries have decided to use the same word, `play`, to describe their main activity :). And indeed, they have a lot in common: both of them need to find new and new ways to make people be interested in them, to captivate attention, both have an intense desire for exploring and discovering and of course both of them like to have fun.
There is always a fine line between passion and obsession. As such, we don’t know where to place Oxana’s favorite recreation: collecting cows. If you ask why cows, well... is there a need to be a reason? She just likes them. Especially the black and white ones, and especially if they are smiling.
We don’t know to what we owe the ability to have fun in almost any circumstance. It may be because we are still ‚young’ in our musical journey, or maybe because we are unaware of the underground things going on around us, or maybe just because we like what we do and we do it with joy even if we play for 50 or 10.000 people.
