La Horsa Bianca is an art rock band from Ukraine influenced by the psychedelic and the progressive, the minimalist and the extravagant, resulting in music rooted in the complex rock of the 70s but also in touch with the world as it is today.
- Eugene Manko: bass, flute, soprano and tenor saxophones, recording and production
- Olga Ksendzovska: pianos, electric organs, synthesizers
- Kirill Gonchar: guitar
- Andrii Brahin: guitar
- Igor Avdeyev: drums, tambourine, vocals
I remember hearing La Horsa Bianca for the first time and not believing this is actually a contemporary Ukrainian band! These songs could’ve been written and performed by some obscure Italian prog masters from the 70s. And their live performance truly elevates their material, making it more psychedelic and groovy. Keep an eye on these guys! – Igor Sidorenko, Stoned Jesus
La Horsa Bianca´s music has been one of the biggest discoveries for me lately. I am myself a big fan of rock and of the good sounds from the seventies and I am very happy that La Horsa Bianca has assimilated and developed very consequently part of a style that I really enjoy. It is difficult today to find a band brave enough to decide to do their thing without any influences from the current mainstream. I love their work searching for the sound they present.
I am sure that La Horsa Bianca would have influenced many of those rock bands I love. I find their music very narrative; their rich dialogues in the instrumentation and their deep knowledge of timbre and how they explore sound (they are all great musicians with a very strong academic background) are just impressing and give them a powerful personality in what they do. I find their music very captivating. I feel they take me on a trip, like a trance, and I love it. I try to imagine what an experience must be to hear them live on a concert. “Parachute”, “Escapology” or “Trumpets of the latter day” are simply great songs. I am very grateful for their music and I wish them all the best!
We are surely witnessing a take off to a great career! – Agustín Castilla-Ávila, Composer and Artistic Researcher, President of the International Society for Ekmelic Music
