Bio

Euphoric and theatrical. Progressive, modern and, above all, loaded with a grandiose Attitude and massive energy. Crossing multiple genres, Danish/Serbian act Tako Lako (directly translated to ''that easy'' from Serbian) have swept away audiences for the past two years. Having already conquered the stages of their native country of Denmark, the band is undeniably a tour de force to be reckoned with.

- Balkan music, afro-beat and primal drumming; an insatiable curiosity towards exploring sounds and moods. Tako Lako's daring mix of genres abounds in ingenious solutions and sudden turnovers which has proved to please every party-loving crowd time and time again. At its core, the band plays danceable, hard-pumping beats with an untraditional approach; focusing on innovation in their performances and style of play as much as in their incredibly catchy tunes. Through their unexpected musical contradictions and their self-ironic approach to their performances, Tako Lako have often been compared to bands like Kaizers Orchestra, Gogol Bordello and Balkan Beat Box. Being lead by the vigorously energetic Serbian lead-singer Ognjen Curcic, who is sure to inspire through his gibberishly ironic lyrics and “in-your-face” attitude, the band has been praised for their euphoric gigs which move not only your feet but also your soul. This was proven further at last year's celebrated Roskilde Festival, where thousands of hungry festival-goers witnessed what was arguably one of Tako Lako's most noteworthy performances; receiving exceptionally high scores from several of the most renowned music magazines and web-sites in Denmark. Aside from performing at Roskilde Festival 2009, Tako Lako have already proven themselves in numerous renowned festivals and competitions in Scandinavia; including reaching the international finals in the world's largest festival for upcoming bands, Emergenza Festival, in 2008. Now, the band aims to reach beyond the borders of the North and into the popular festivals and heated clubs of Europe.
