Nõidus by OOPUS (2019)
Debut album of Estonian audiovisual folktronica band, OOPUS
OOPUS "NÕIDUS / SORCERY" represents many different faces of the band and invites you to discover magical and powerful world of traditional tunes with a modern twist.
OOPUS combines psy-ambient-techno-trad music with live visuals. Traditional instruments meet synthesizers and co-create this world of dance and wonder live. OOPUS takes bits and pieces of North European folk tunes and combines them with contemporary club culture mixing and matching old and new and making it relevant for contemporary audiences.
