We are Ukrainian artists (from Kyiv) who live in Switzerland (Zurich). For 14 years of professional concert activity, we have created such unique shows: LAFESTA band, laser harp show, singer in 3D dress, lounge orchestra. These projects have made vivid and memorable more than 1430 different events, corporate parties, and weddings in 17 countries.
LAFESTA music project was founded by the first of our shows (in 2008). The idea of creating the band belongs to Igor Kuksenko, who previously worked as a documentary film director and CEO of the «Kvartal» art project. Already in 2010, the «DJam» music edition marked the LAFESTA band as one of the most stylish musical projects in Eastern Europe.
The soloist of the LAFESTA music project was the opera singer Olga Rossi, who studied at the Kyiv Conservatory (National Music Academy of Ukraine) and sang leading roles in famous opera performances. Olga has a rare talent - she sings professionally in three vocal manners: pop, authentic (folk), and opera. She began the first in Ukraine to create luminous dresses, which became the hallmark of LAFESTA.
Between 2009 and 2011 LAFESTA was a resident of the best restaurants and clubs in Kyiv (B-hush, OK-bar, D'Lux, Olmeca). Then the band began to perform only at events (wedding parties, gala dinners, club parties, private corporate parties). Currently, LAFESTA has performed for more than 80 well-known world brands: Armani, Lufthansa, Apple, Infiniti, MasterCard, UEFA, Coca-Cola, Chanel, Pioneer, Visa, Google, Sony, Siemens, Bentley, L'oreal, Jaguar, Canon, Bosh, Pepsi, Shell, BMW, Pierre Cardin, Bacardi, and many others.
LAFESTA was the first Ukrainian project to start filming all of its videos abroad (Valencia – 2012, Krakow – 2012, London – 2013, Barcelona – 2013), which aired on leading music channels: MTV, M1, StarTV. The «Electro opera» video clip was shot at a unique location – in the «City of Arts and Sciences» (La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias).
In October 2013, the LAFESTA music project held a major solo concert, accompanied by a symphony orchestra, modern ballet, and video projection. The concert presented the unique author's program Electro & Lounge opera in the center of Kyiv (on European Square). Several songs from this album became soundtracks for the TV shows: «Secular Life», «HD Fashion TV», «Madrid Fashion Week».
Since 2014, the LAFESTA band began to actively perform at events accompanied by the personal lounge orchestra.
2017 was a new milestone in the history of the Ukrainian show business, thanks to the unique «novaYA» laser harp show. The soloist of LAFESTA (Olga Rossi) became the only singer in the world to play this futuristic musical instrument. Live playing on laser beams plus charming opera vocal and the original luminous dress immediately highlighted «novaYA» show in the event sphere. For several years, the laser harp show has been performed at such significant events as Pierre Cardin and Gianfranco Ferre fashion shows; the wedding of the son of Ras al-Khaimah’s Sheikh (UAE); awarding ceremonies: «TOP-100 of the best companies», «Man of the Year 2017» and «Woman of the Year 2019», «Heroes of the Sports Year» and «Energy Excellence Awards»; the gala dinner at the Royal Palace of Bucharest (Romania); many other iconic events and presentations.
In 2018, we created a 3D dress show («VG» show). Perfectly designed video projection allows you to immerse yourself in bright content and turns the dress of the opera diva into a canvas, where colorful stories, art nouveau graphics, patterns, and branding of the company become alive.
In December 2019, Olha was awarded the «III Millennium Woman Award» for her contribution to the development of contemporary music and art. The award ceremony was held in the National Operetta Theater (Ukraine).
After Russia's military attack on Ukraine and the start of a full-scale war, we live in Switzerland. We are currently developing several new shows that will be coming soon.
