Formed at the dawn of the millennium by six young Londoners with
diverse musical roots, Oi Va Voi made an instant impact with their
debut album Laughter Through Tears. Produced by Grammy award
winners Bacon & Quarmby, the album was a double winner at the
BBC Radio 3 World Music awards and Dutch Eddison Award winner.
It was listed in The New York Times Top 10 albums of the year and
launched the career of guest vocalist KT Tunstall.
For their forth and forthcoming album, founding members Josh
Breslaw (drums) and Steve Levi (clarinet/vocals), along with
trumpeter Dave Orchant and guitarist Michael Vinaver, make up
the core songwriting quartet. Also prominent on thealbum is the
spellbinding, virtuosic violinist Anna Phoebe, who has appeared live
with Oi Va Voi while building a successful solo career.
The result is an album that brims with Oi Va Voi''s traditional
strengths of blazing musicianship, insightful songcraft and
meticulous production - and adds to that a more ambitious
rhythmical texture, along with personal soul and political urgency
in Levi''s lyrics and new vocalists Zohara''s voice. Over a singular
career Oi Va Voi have made a point of transcending genre and
defying trends, in favour of more enduring and meaningful musical
and cultural values. The new songs will get their first live outing
alongside established favourites from Oi Va Voi''s catalogue when the
band tours later in 2018.
