Aya Calko

CH

Aya Calko is a meiosis. Six musicians riding on dark odd rhythms and fractally flowershaped melodies. Some might say it’s psychedelic Balkan, but then, one night, A Y A decided to sneak out of the drawer they had tried to lock her up inside.
Free to roam, she is now tripping through the musical hoods. Whistling and humming she weaves explorative sound carpets in the light of a Rad moon.
