Eko & Vinda Folio

20 Sep 19

A country with multiple influences, located on the borders of Europa and Asia, we know Georgia from its Caucasian peaks and its seaside resorts along the Black Sea. We have drunk its sparkling wine, tasted its raviolis. We are acquainted with the long tradition of polyphonic singing, but we don't know much about its nightlife and the rising importance of today's music scene. We needed to visit Fabrika (a multicultural place that houses Vodkast Records, the country's only independent record shop), and get to know the coolness of the Tbilisi Open Air Festival (Franz Ferdinand, Mogwai and Unkle are three of this year's headliners). The youth is dancing, and the youth is composing. Eko & Vinda Folio are two of its worthiest representatives. Erekle Deisadze (vocals) and Temo Ezugbaia aka Vinda Folio (guitar, vocals) met in 2012 when they were both students. The Tbilisi duet joined a protest movement, considering music as a vector of social emancipation. "Activism is like an alternative culture in Georgia", they confided to the webzine Soul Kitchen at the beginning of 2017 upon the release of their first EP on Talitres. Distancing themselves from the politically oriented songs, "Therapy", their debut album, delivers an enchanting romanticism, a secret place where each one of us can draw dreams. The two musicians define here the contours of a poetic and singular universe punctuated by enigmatic lyrics. On some tracks, Erekle Deisadze's deep, sometimes sepulchral voice makes way for Vinda Folio's. The Georgian language, holding the round intonations of its letters, creeps in into us, slowly and lastingly. This music oscillates gracefully between cold wave, dream pop and dance rhythms (it's a dark and cold dance, but very addictive), and borrows its influences from British post punk and from the musicians' everyday life.
