Cucina Povera

Cucina Povera is a solo project of Finnish-born Luxembourgish vocalist and synthesist Maria Rossi who has experimented with layered vocals, field recordings and minimal synthesis in the past. She is now embarking on a few collaborative projects and is playing a few live gigs around the UK and internationally to close the chapter of her second solo release. The album ‘Zoom’ is a stark collection of simple melodies harmonised with the help of a pocket recorder and a looping pedal. There are almost no instruments, apart from a clip top glass bottle picked up in a hardware shop for the making of home brewed strong Sima. Working from the dual framework of precarity and serendipity, Maria creates unique worlds via sound, transporting listeners to new and surreal altitudes.
