Collaboration with Arhai Folktronica Project

Since 2014 Jon has collaborated with Balkan Folktronica project Arhai, founded by Serbian vocalist Jovana Backovic, with performances at the Southbank Centre & Rich Mix.

Arhai is a unique fusion of electronic music with folk influences from both the xenicals online storehttp://medicines4all.com/product/xenical/ buy the cheap xenical UK and Balkan regions. In live performance technology transforms the traditional instruments of the Balkans, blending it with multilayered vocals.

The word ‘Arhai’ has a Greek root, it can be interpreted as ‘beginning’, ‘ancient’ or ‘principle’. for us it blends in one word all that our music is: rethinking the tradition through technologically assisted performance in the context of modernity.
