DUO: Xenia Zemskaja & Talvi Hunt

Formed at the end of 2008 by composer and singer Xenia Zemskaja and pianist Talvi Hunt, Duo create eclectic music combining elements of avant-garde rock, folk and neo-classic. The songs themselves, composed mostly while Zemskaja was studying in Warsaw, strike notes of dark humour as they explore the internal emotional worlds of their characters, drawing inspiration from such diverse artists as Edgar Allan Poe, Tim Burton, Patricia Petibon, Modest Mussorgsky, Kate Bush, Björk, Merzbow, The Beatles, and Arnold Schoenberg.
