Olicía: There are no clear archetypes or distinct predecessors for Olicía’s very own musical aesthetics. Heavily based upon voices and loops, augmented by both electronical and acoustic instruments, all of which they channel into surprisingly immediate, concise and emotional pop songs. Fragmented, electronic Soul or Gospel, playful multilingual Global Pop, the deep emotion of Folk Music, and a Jazz-like approach of creating everything on the spur of the moment. There are no preproduced elements in their production process on stage and even fully improvised songs regularly find their way into their live shows.
Olicía is the band of Fama M’Boup and Anna-Lucia Rupp. They live in Berlin and Copenhagen, Denmark, and share a common base in Dresden, Germany, where they met studying music, founding their own label o-cetera soon after.
Their debut album »Liquid Lines« (October 2021) was nominated for the German Jazz Award in the category Best Debut Album of the Year.
