Ann-Sofie Öman on Katarina Juvančič and Dejan Lapanja, a.k.a. Migrant Birds

As a couple, Katarina Juvančič and Dejan Lapanja have a lot of complementary qualities. But they also have something in common: They both can set an audience on fire.

She, with a burning, completely honest and strong voice, singing protest songs in a low register with flaming words like a young Joan Baez or Buffy Sainte-Marie.

He, with a one man orchestra extremely developed rhythmical guitar playing technique, using the whole range of the guitar, a lot of variation plus harmonic and disharmonic colouration, accompanied by a left foot stomping the hot pulse with such drive that the whole building seems to start rocking.

Just wait and see - together they will deliver great balls of fire.
