Ole Lukkøye are part of the Russian underground. The band was formed by Boris Bardash and Andrej Lavrinenko in St. Petersburg in 1989. With the release of their second album 'Toomze', the band showed the high ambition they aspired to: It's a concoction of British ArtRock, musical influences from all parts of the former Soviet Union and elements of ambient and trance which makes this music so intriguing. The group fuses traditional Russian styles (for example that of the Tuva-region in southern Siberia) with current western rhythms and sounds. The result, a dark and shamanistic psychedelic trance rock with much percussion and many acoustic instruments, opens a door between east and west
