There‘s a new name on Lithuanian music scene and it‘s KAnDIs! It‘s a musical project by Algirdas Kaušpėda and Viktoras Diawara. More than two years ago, Algirdas Kaušpėdas, the leader of the band Antis, together with Viktor Diawara, a member of the band Skamp which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, has created a new band and presents their debut album “Už poliarinio rato”.
“KA and DI make KAnDIs. It is a duo of creativity, a collaboration of two original artists. Two musicians, and it doesn‘t happen very often, have found a sustainable way to complement each other. What’s more, opened up a wider horizon of artistic vision to each other. This is a real, stunningly effective synergy of artists, ” says Algirdas Kaušpėdas, vocalist of the band KAnDIs.
The collaboration of both musicians began in 2013, when Viktor Diawara produced “Baisiai džiugu!”, an album by Antis.
KAnDIs released their debut album on February 21 this year and presented it at Vilnius Book Fair. There are ten songs in the album. Two works of this album “Vėjas” and “Tavęs nėra” were produced by Leon Somov.
