Like a hydra with two head, the French violin and drum duo FiliaMotSa from Nancy is an extremely powerful team. Drummer Anthony and violinist Émilie, together with the rest of their band will make a stopover at the Rockhalcafe on 9 October 2012 for a free showcase concert.
FiliaMotSa is a French eccentric drums and electric violin duo born in spring 2007. On a ring of a few square meters, two musicians wrestle in a soft and brutal gushes, where the combat unit binds in implacable music pieces. The energy of this rock duo draws its sources from uncontrolled noise improvisation, psychedelic sixties & seventies, and binary of primal and revanchist grunge.
In summer 2008, after one year touring in France and in Belgium, the duo won a young competition and spent six weeks in North America where they could play in such mythical places as Casa del Popolo at Montréal. Since then, they've been playing in various places and festivals dedicated to rock and improvisation.
After 140 shows in 3 years in France, Belgium, Canada and the United States, Filiamotsa have shard the stage with the likes of Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), The Ex, Kannibal, Nosfell, Oxbow, Pneu, John & Jehn, HIM, 65 Days Of Static, Michael Schenker (Scorpions !!) & Simon Wright (AC/DC !!!). The duo has played on stage of festivals like Printemps de Bourges, Eurockéennes de Belfort, JDM, Festival, Francofolies de Spa, Chien à Plumes, Nancy Jazz Pulsation, Musique Action...
