DOX LIVE: A talk show that allows you to find out a lot more about the performing artists than you’d ever expect – and even ask your own questions. 

Russian Tatar poet and singer Aigel Gaysina and St. Petersburg musician Ilya Baramiya have launched their joint project in 2017, when Aigel contacted Ilya on VKontakte, the most popular Russian social network. For Gaysina, music was a way to come to terms with a personal tragedy: in 2017, her boyfriend and bandmate Temur Khadyrov was sentenced to three years in top security prison for attempted murder. Gaysina’s lyrics teem with strong metaphors and shocking personal confessions, which provides a striking contrast to Baramiya’s stark, minimalist music. The video for their song You’re Born was nominated for best direction at the Berlin Music Video Awards, and placed second in the Music Video Category at the Yekaterinburg Unknown Film Festival.
