About Band

The Budapest based Russian-Armenian-Hungarian band Deti Picasso plays an unusual sort of music - head-spinning and sharp, with strong ethnic roots, psychodelia and hypnotic energy. Incredibly expressive female vocals, transparent guitar music and a soft cello sound are mixed with rough psychedelic tunes. Ancient Armenian chants and songs recorded with the academic string quartet blend with new forms of guitar sound. The music is extremely fresh, original, extraordinary and captivatingly sincere. At the centre of the band is Gaya Arutyunyan - one of the most original singers of the Russian world music and rock scene.  Gaya's voice is not operatic, smooth, or even attractive. It is jagged, nervous, and urgent.

As a result of their domestic success, they were invited to play the biggest festivals and clubs in France, Portugal, Hungary, Austria, Poland, Germany, Croatia, Finland, Estonia and the Czech Republic.  Among the most important are Festival Musicas do Mundo in , Sziget festival in , Rock for People and Na jednom brehu festivals in the Czech Rep., Fete de la Musique in , and more.They have collaborated repeatedly with Hungarian acid jazz band Masfel, Moldavian ethno punks Zdob si Zdub, American punk accordeonist Jason Webley, free jazz sax player Istavn Grencso and Alexander Hacke, the bass player of Einsturzende Neubauten.
