Mary Ocher was born in Moscow, spent her youth in Tel Aviv and today lives in her adopted home of Berlin. Her genre-spanning style of music is as multicultural as her lineage: a wild mix of art rock, pop, folk and electronic, whose most important ingredient is her distinctive voice.
Again and again she takes up in her song lyrics also political and socio-critical topics.
Mary Ocher is back in Europe for selected dates with Your Government and this very special show with new material performed for the first time.
Your Government are the two drummers Mats Fokesson and Theo Taylor. The encounter brings together Mary Ocher + Your Government – an ambitious work of art made of rhythm-laden, unmistakable sound mixing, paired with video projections and a political message.
Mary Ocher: grand piano, guitar, synthesizer, vocals
