Karpov not Kasparov

Local heroes in their native Bucharest but also quite active musical tourists, Karpov not Kasparov have been carrying their instruments throughout Europe during the past four years, playing their very energetic live set in alternative venues from Berlin, Milano, Vienna, Florence, Hamburg, Basel, Torino, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Prague, Lille or Budapest.

The duo began making music based on the rules and strategies of chess. It might seem complicated but the output is always a very danceable melody, sometimes inspired by Oriental folklore (because chess is an Oriental game) and always mixed with powerful 80's dancefloor sounds.
