Sacrament of Fleur

April 18 2007

This unique group was formed in February 2000, when Olga Pulatova (piano, vocals, songwriter) and Elena Voynarovsky (guitar, vocals, songwriter) began to rehearse at home. The official birthday of the group is 8 March 2000, when a group of the third person - Julia Earthen (flute). The name of the team treats each in its own way: for some people the word "Fleur" - a flower in French, for someone - Bodler "Flowers of Evil" for someone - music ... We can not remember the phrase "veil of secrecy." Very poetic comment on the choice of name Olga Pulatova: "I immediately had the cracked wooden casket, which concealed some mystery, the smell of time ...".

The first statement Fleur held March 17, 2000 at an evening program "Atmosphere" in Odessa House actor. Then began to appear in the new musicians, and finally an amazing flower bloomed in all its glory - from the duo's team turned in an interesting and original band with a large team of participants.

Definition CardioWave not correlate with a particular musical style. And is it possible to classify music by genre, emanating from the heart? According to Olga Pulatova is the most accurate definition of the process, when a person is using sounds, words, emotions, your special and unique inner world. And I must say, the process of creating songs the band fit more than seriously. As Olga says, to compose songs that can inspire you like: "... can catch even one word, accidentally heard or read, observing people in the streets. All sorts of strange ideas, which themselves come, but mostly, of course, dreams. " In this creative process goes on constantly: "the creation of songs happens all the time, but the strongest songs created in solitude, in complete isolation."

As you can see, interest is not only creative collective, but also a philosophy of its individual members. "We do not accept any pinning whatsoever labels, and generally do not accept any definitions" - said Elena Voynarovsky - "because everything is essentially narrows the horizons of vision of the true nature of things."

With a few principles should be, for example, sponsors are not advertised at the concert and tickets cost as much as the situation requires; concerts - is a mystery.

These ordinances are in different cities - Kiev, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Donetsk, and not only because the group Fleur quite actively touring with concerts. The band released several albums - "Touch", "Almost Live", "Heart", "Magic", "Glow" and "Everything spiraled out of control."

His band performs music, using no exotic instruments: in the - guitar, violin, flute, bass, cello, keyboards, etc. Nevertheless, a combination of conventional and familiar tools in this case sounds unique. Many attempts to enter Fleur in any frame - whether "neoclassic", "dream-pop", "Gothic", "etheral" - resulted in the fact that the musicians gave his own definition - "cardio-wave". The French label "Prikosnovenie" indicates the similarity of music Fleur with bands such as Cocteau Twins, and Bel Canto. And replying to a question that has influenced the formation of this very unique style, Helen Voynarovsky notes that the roots must be sought in the music world's peoples, as "the soul does not limit itself to geographical limits and it is inherent in the concept of internationalism."Then, with her usual philosophical views on the nature of things, Elena elaborates: "... it's trance, ritual and expressive folk music, which anciently were superimposed, accumulate the energy of powerful feelings and aspirations of the human soul, the energy of natural elements, which is like nothing else makes think about their roots ... "

Deep philosophy. A serious attitude to music, peculiar only truly gifted creative personalities. Alas, this approach is rather infrequent in our time of propaganda and the dominance of light unpretentious Muzychko, under which the listener is invited to drink beer and not think about the questions of existence. But, fortunately, there is another Music.

Despite the fact that creativity Fleur can not enter into the framework of a particular musical genre, their work affects people's hearts with a variety of musical tastes. At concerts, Fleur come and Volker ", and" Goths ", fans of dark-folk'a and classics. After all, the music emanating from the heart, close and clear to all good people. And according to one person, attended a concert Fleur, "bad people do not listen to such music."

And on Thursday, April 19, Muscovites and guests of the capital will once again provide a rare opportunity to enjoy the beautiful music of Fleur.
