The Dialogues Duo

The Dialogues Project emerged purely by chance in 2008 when Oleg and Natalia (The Duo) came to Israel to play at a festival and could not find a bass player who was able to master the program. The idea of the project is to discover the endless possibilities of drums and grand piano as solo instruments, featuring the unusual rhythm and timbre of a percussion and a chordal instrument in combination.

The Duo infuses musical material with a modern sound using keyboards and percussion, adding Natalia’s vocals sung in unison with keyboard solos or vocalizations on top of a synth string pad. With this, Natalia sings some all-time ballads like «The Man I love» and «The Nearness of You».

«Dialogues» is a project of the twenty-first century. Today it has no equal anywhere in the world.
