Umbra

Umbra, Marija Balubdžić’s solo project, was recommended to us by her mother label Baba Vanga that has been releasing interesting cassettes for many years. Marija is active in Belgrade and Vienna, and transforms the influences of both cities into her work. Her sound is based on her powerful and energetic voice, which develops into electronic poetry. The Quietus writes about her: “Marija Balubdžić has participated in a diverse variety of musics over the years, conducting choirs, making noise poetry, and working with some far more academic electroacoustic methods and pedagogies. Her solo project, Umbra, synthesizes it all together, splitting constantly between sweet and sour, noise and melody.“ We’re looking forward to being consumed by her music in CCC Club at Pohoda 2019.
