This Czech duo is a two person dance party. Quirky and mysterious, their music is a fantastical collage of pop, kitchen beat box, tango, circus, electronica and radio noise, wrapped around lyrics written in their own imaginary language. Their new album Nipomo won “2015 Album of the Year” at the Vinyl Music Awards. Operating in a creative microcosm, DVA have forged their very own idiosyncratic sonic lexicon – “pop for non-existing radios” or “folklore of non-existing nations”. In Czech, it takes two “dva” to tango – Bára Kratochvílová and Jan Kratochvíl, have carved out a niche with their rich sonic landscape.
“Absolutely amazing blend of off kilter electronics, homemade percussion and traditional instrumentation. Wow!” : BBC.
