Nico began her love affair with music and dance from a very young age, being brought up in Communist Romania with limited access to new music, she did her research in the local Balkan sounds, Swing, Blues and Latin, till she later on discovered Electronic/Dance music which she fell in love with.
During this show Nico will be playing an eclectic mix of World music, Swing, Blues, Tropical, Balkan and Easter sounds combined with new Electronic sounds that she loves!
From the lady herself;
‘The music I play has been influenced by my childhood memories of old traditional folk, gypsy and fanfara music. But after experiencing music of different cultures around the world I can’t help but introduce new elements into what I do, uniting them with a contemporary electronic sound. The tunes that move me and make me dance are the ones that end up in my sets. Doesn’t matter of style or genre’
