Zapaska is electro-acoustic indie-pop duo, based in Ukraine. Two performers (Ianina Shpachynska and Pavlo Nechytajlo) create music with the help of traditional instruments and electronics. Influenced by rock, hip-hop and folktronica suffuses through their music, which is generally based on Ukrainian melodies.
Since their appearance in 2009 Zapaska have recorded two EPs: Lanka (2010, self released), and Translitom (2011, XXX Waves).
The duo toured the Ukraine and abroad (autumn 2011, February 2012 - joint tour with Slovak duo Longital), participating in many festivals (Bazant Pohoda 2012 (CZ), United Islands of Praha 2012 (CZ), Pohoda Indoor Camping 2011 (SK), Noc Kultury w Lublinie 2012 (PL), Europejski Stadion Kultury 2011 (PL), Art Pole 2012 (UA), Tramtamtydamtuda 2012 (CZ), Boskovice Music Festival 2012 (CZ), etc.
ZAPASKA is permanently changing, enriching its sound, with live performances often exceeding expectations of an audience acquainted with the records.
In spite of their evolving sound what remains stable in Zapaska is its crystalline authentic fusion of folktronica and all that they draw from their roots.Email me: , or call +44(0) 7791 699889 to book.
