Koncert

Chinawoman, nova zvezda svetovne alternativne glasbene scene, je umetniški projekt pevke Michelle Gurevich. Njene pesmi – ki »manevrirajo med grandioznimi retromotivi in nepričakovano iskrenostjo« (music.com.ua, maj 2010) – so tragikomične, v njih prevladujeta melodija in sentiment, obenem pa se zdi, da lebdijo v prostoru suspenza in temačnega glamurja. Chinawoman primerjajo s pevkami in zvezdami svetovnega formata, kot so Nico, Leonard Cohen in Marc Almond, ter velikimi umetnicami iz obdobja Sovjetske zveze, kot sta na primer Edita Peha in zgodnja Alla Pugačova. V njenem glasu nekateri prepoznavajo šamanske in morrisonovske intonacije in občudujejo predvsem barvo hipnotičnega glasu, ki spominja na Tanito Tikaram. V krogu vzhodnoevropskih glasbenikov in skupin, kot so Beirut, Devotchka in Gogol Bordello, pa je Chinawoman edina, ki ji uspeva ujeti romantični ruski podton tega glasbenega vala. Chinawoman polni dvorane v vzhodnem bloku od Berlina do Sankt Peterburga, kjer se predstavlja z repertoarji z obeh albumov.

Concert

Chinawoman is a rising star on the global map of the alternative music scene and the artistic brainchild of singer Michelle Gurevich. Her songs – which “manoeuvre between grandiose retro motifs and a surprising sincerity” (music.com.ua, May 2010) – are tragicomic, melody-driven, sentimental and exist suspended in a shadowy glamour. Chinawoman has drawn comparisons to Nico, Leonard Cohen and Marc Almond, as well as Soviet-era singing stars such as Edita Peha and early Alla Pugacheva. Her voice has been described as having shamanic and Morrisonesque intonations, a timbre akin to Tanita Tikaram. Amid the wave of Eastern European-styled artists such as Beirut, Devotchka and Gogol Bordello, Chinawoman singularly captures the romantic Russian domain of this resurgence. With the repertoire of her two albums, Chinawoman ‘rules’ audiences in the Eastern Bloc from Berlin to St. Petersburg.

Vocals, guitar, keyboard: Michelle Gurevich; Drums: Robin Thomson; Baritone guitar: Diego Ferri.
