A marriage of intelligence and beauty rendered more mysterious by the sole use of her native Russian, Krai by Olga Bell is a work as rich in history as it is in sound. Having worked with the likes of Dirty Projectors and Tom Vek, Brooklyn-based Bell shows here a talent all her own. Imagine Karin Elisabeth Dreijer tackling a Bjork album with the Kronos Quartet. Out on CD & vinyl LP from One Little Indian.

8/10 Fedoro Benvenuti Customer review, 1st March 2015

Olga Bell, pianist child prodigy (first concert held at the age of nine) is now engaged on many fronts in a vision of total music that transcends all barriers of genre and style, because if his training is classic, she contributes in projects ranging from indie to pop, hip hop, to compositions for dance performances. from 2012 she is part of the Dirty Projectors as keyboardist. "Krai" in Russian means the edge and/or the suburbs, Bell refers to remote locations, lost in the endless Russian lowlands, far from major cities and cultural centers, known just as 'Krai regions'. Places where the rites and roots have a extraordinary weight, evoked by the melodies and atmospheres of the disc. We are drawn from notes on a journey along the Eurasian steppes, the steam rises from the samovar in isba in White Russian night and the aroma of the tea seems to be spreading along with the music. To be stored between The Dirty Projectors and Les Misteres des voix bulgares!
