ABOUT

Obradović-Tixier Duo is the combination of French pianist David Tixier and Croatian drummer Lada Obradovic. The duo produce a contemporary and stylish sound blending acoustic and electronic instruments, moog, Fender Rhodes, glockenspiel, mbira and other playthings. A soft yet striking performance where David's sophisticated harmonies and lyrical drama interweave with Lada's polyrhythms. An almost serial shamanic piano phrase is muffled by digital blankets whilst a volley of cymbals whisks us away like wings beating through the air. Together, the pair weave a captivating tale.

QUOTES

​"An unusual and innovating music, elegant and sensitive, elaborated and interactive. Between light touch and strength, it fascinates and surprises as much as it stimulates."

                                                                                                 

Nicole Videmann, Latin de Jazz & Cie for Jazz A Vienne
