Iva Nova- Accordion with Attitude

Iva Nova is an all-girl rock band from St. Petersburg, Russia. The accordionist certainly plays with more enthusiasm than I think I've ever seen. Believe me, you have to be in pretty good shape to dance around with a 20-pound box strapped to you!

Their web site describes them: "Besides lyrics on Russian IVA NOVA have songs on Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Georgian and Tatar languages. Along with exploiting endless folklore resources they creatively experiment with other styles. Their live show is a mix of lyrical songs and punky-energetic dances."

  1. I play the accordion and my father plays it, but we never played that rock with the accordion, just folk and contemporary stuff...a lot of accordions in rock bands do not get played to their fullest potential - they just play mainly on the keyboard and a couple of repetitive base, so it's not really a good place to judge accordion's really nice when it's done the traditional way.


Tell me how you love or hate the squeezebox!
