Morgane Ji


jazz / soul / funk

Morgane Ji is a striking singer originally from the island of Reunion. It all started with the record label World Patch B who were looking for unusual singers, and they offered to record one of Morgane’s songs. This was shortly followed by a debut album, “Noah’s Boat”, recorded in France and the UK.At this time, the UK music press described her as a “phenomenal singer”, and nicknamed her the “Creole Queen”. The Irish Times in Dublin awarded ‘Noah’s Boat’ 4 stars in their world music category.

Soon, they would create "InOrganic" and "Idiomes" albums, which affirmed Morgane Ji's unique musical style: mixture of rock and electronic, a unique voice (which can be described as a mixture of sensual and wild), idiomatic lyrical prose and Shamanesque cries.

Morgan Ji with the band will present their new album "Woman Soldier" at the Voronezh concert.

"An extraordinary voiced young metisse woman Her voice has an amazing range, both in pitch and tone,and she matches it with some really individual and snatchy songwriting "

Lola Marsh


dream-pop / indie-pop 

Lola Marsh is a fast growing pop sensation from Tel Aviv.

The band was formed as a duo in 2013 by the vocalist Yael Shoshana Cohen and Gil Landau (Guitars, Keyboards). Mati Gilad (Bass), Rami Osservaser (Guitar, Keyboards), Dekel Dvir (Drums and samplers) joined them shortly after. The group started performing in local clubs. They were quickly spotted by the leading local indie label Anova Music who signed the band.

Lola Marsh's music combines deep, warm, nostalgic vocals, heart-on-the-sleeve-lyrics and enchanting guitar melodies.Jason Grishkoff from Indie Shuffle described the band: "Lola Marsh does a superb job of slowly building up... bit by bit into something mesmerizing that has me waiting on bated breath for their debut album."

The band premiered their first single "Sirens", via Nylon Magazine in March 2015; Nylon said of the song: "The Dreamy Tel Aviv Band's latest song, "Sirens", offers a twist on the typical sweet-yet-gritty indie sound...The track seems ready made for Quentin Tarantino's next film score". It quickly received millions of streams and reached number 5 on Spotify's list of the Top 10 Most Viral Tracks in the US. The song was later featured in the American TV show Scream.

Following massive performances in leading festivals and after attracting media praise, they signed with Universal Music France and Sony ATV.

The band's second single, "You're Mine", was released in May 2015 via Pigeons and Planes. It garnered over six million plays on Spotify and landed in the service’s top 3 Most Viral Tracks as well as in the top 3 of Hype Machine's Most Popular Tracks ranking

Lola Marsh's debut EP, You're Mine, was released in January 2016. In April 2016 the band co-wrote an original song with Madsonik and Keith Power called "Drift And Fall Again", for the soundtrack of the feature film Criminal, which stars Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and other Hollywood famous actors.

Their third single, "She's a Rainbow", was released in May 2016. Lola Marsh’s debut record, “Remember Roses” was released in 2017 and was received with critical acclaim.

“Put them together, and singer Yael Shoshana Cohen and multi-instrumentalist Gil Landau mount a charm offensive powerful enough to knock down some pretty sturdy defenses. Performing as Lola Marsh, the Israeli musicians distill their sound down to a small set of spare, ingratiating ingredients. In the case of "Wishing Girl," those building blocks are simple but potent: a whistled hook, Landau's briskly strummed ukulele and Cohen's voice."
