AXISORCA

Sobre AxisOrca

AxisOrca is the duo of Catalan singer / multi-instrumentalist Carola Ortiz and French drummer / multi-instrumentalist Landy Gana, who began composing songs together two years ago and brought their beautiful debut album to completion in December 2013. ‘Axis’ is an intimate window into the sounds of a house right in the historic heart of Barcelona, is a self-produced album that expresses the love, musical connection, spirituality and dream worlds Carola and Landy share.

AxisOrca alchemizes influences from jazz, alternative pop, brazilian rhythms, urban groove, electronica and classical music to create a unique yet somehow familiar set of songs. They naturally switch between English, French and Catalan. Landy’s fresh approach to rhythms, grooves and guitar playing perfectly complements Carola’s sensual voice, lyrical clarinet and imaginative use of sound textures. In live they present their music in acoustic Trio and electric Sextet.
