Acoustic Sessions – All Night

  • Moskitto Bar:
  • The Wild Foreigners: The Wild Foreigners formed during the spring of 2021, when 4 music loving souls couldn’t stop playing and singing with one another.
  • In late 2019, Yusif, a singer-songwriter with a knack for moving melodies, previously from the band The Rangers, and Subhayu, a bassist with a distinctly elegant style, from the band Squid Mountain, would find common taste in Beatles-esque music, embellished chords and timeless melodies, and plan on forming a new band that would capture this very sound they both admired.
  • Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of 2020, that would end up postponed. Nevertheless, in the summer of 2020, Yusif would perform at beach concerts and bonfires with Yuri – the kizomba dancing sailor and a soulful guitarist – a wide ranging repertoire of old and contemporary music from many different corners of the world, making for a wild and unforgettable summer.
  • Later on, in the subsequent winter months, Yusif would come to realize the undeniable vocal chemistry they had with Oksana, a vocalist with the smooth and unadulterated voice of an angel, and start singing together, harmonizing anything and everything ’til their vocal chords no longer could.
  • This paved the way to the union of the three, playing anything from acoustic Russian folk, Turkish rock to Spanish, Italian and French ballads, to originals by Yusif and much more.
  • As the spring came along, they would welcome Subhayu into this endeavor, and these four old soul Wild Foreigners would start dishing out songs in more than 8 languages, all interpreted in the unique style that came about as the intersection of these four different worlds, each shaped by its own upbringing, influences, and stories – nevertheless connecting with each other through the love of their common language – music…
