Biography

   Dacianos
Marie Kvamme, Barry Kavanagh and Håkon Larsen, Nystua festival, Eidsvoll Verk, Norway, 9 July 2010, by Lasse W. Fosshaug.


Biography:

'Beautiful, spiritual, melodic music... poignant music punctuated with moments of genuine joy.'

May 2011: the fifth album by Dacianos, entitled Fables for Another Time, is now available. It was recorded in Norway and features, in order of appearance: Barry Kavanagh (piano, voice, elka organ, pss-380 keyboard, guitar), Håkon Larsen (drums, egg, tambourine), Marius Kolbenstvedt (metallophones, bass, sampler, moogerfoogers, synths, zithers, baritone guitar), Marius Ergo (elka organ), Sara Cools Yri (accordion & glockenspiel), Marie Kvamme (voice) and Ilmar Wilbers (cello) .

Only Barry Kavanagh remains from the original band that first took form in Ireland and created two mini-albums, the mostly-acoustic Mis-showbusiness, released in 2000, and Hold Music, released in 2002, which went the other direction with drum machine and sampler. The Irish musicians in those days included John McMahon, who is a member of Rollers/Sparkers.

Over the next few years, Kavanagh was in London, UK , then he moved to Oslo, Norway in 2005. A collection of Irish, British and Norwegian recordings were compiled on the CD In a Weird Chalet 2004-2006.
Dacianos then became a wholly Oslo-based project, with Håkon Larsen, Marius Kolbenstvedt, Marie Kvamme and Ilmar Wilbers all appearing on the albums Gratis? (2009) and Fables for Another Time (2011).
