"Animalis" Performance at Dulwich Picture Gallery 

An extraordinary dance performance takes place in London that I wrote a 15 minute Music Composition for. You can marvel and ponder at the beauty and passion of Dane Hurst's choreography and performance Dulwich Picture Gallery as part of the "Art of Violence" Exhibit every Sunday from 10:30am-4:30pm till January 29, 2019. It supports the subject that boggles the mind through the ages: human nature, violence, passion, forgiveness, overcoming our harmful tendencies. What a good team we have been to create this. Thanks, Dane for making it come to life!

 

MAKING A NEW RECORD! 

Hello world! Perhaps disappearing is not such a bad thing! While I was missing in action for you I was searching for the right creative team to create a new EP with! Searching a producer is like taking shots in the dark, there is a sea of creative people out there. How do you find a life partner? It's kind of the same. But through power of connection, kind and caring friends and musicians, band members of mine and also struck of luck I bumped into a pretty talented creative, Brendan Davies, who cares to bring out the essence of me and and my songs and possesses pretty amazing qualities to create new sounds, electronic textures, work with drums and bass and the whole mesh of things we call music. We are cooking up a new record together with the drummer, David Green, guitarist Vilasini Venkatesh, and Vulcan String Quartet. More to come soon! If you want to support the making of this EP you can buy more of my last CDs/digital files of my previous album here and gift them to your friends. 

PLAYING LIVE 

... For a terrific time at the AKI and the Esse Concerts in Zürich and Winterthur. We all escaped our daily routine life and got carried away just the way we wanted!

MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE REVIEW - LIVE! 

“Her poignant words resonate amid intricate, piano-based melodies to create high-quality indie-pop similar to Regina Spektor and Yael Naim. While her style seems destined for the airwaves of NPR, there’s also crossover potential to pop and AAA radio formats. Her soaring tunes have a cinematic feel and would seem custom made for movie soundtracks.
Forova’s voice is sweet and distinctive...The strings and brass add luscious layers to the well-crafted songs, separating them from similar acts in the genre. Nikki Forova kept the audience entranced with a whirlwind of songs, both high-flying and touching. With music that conveys a wide range of emotion, many listeners will find Nikki Forova instantly relatable.”

WELCOME TO MY NEW BAND MEMBERS! 

Last year I met two incredibly gifted and intuitive musicians who have years of experience of playing in the bands! Happy to announce they have joined me as a band and we are now taking our musical journey together. Michael Berweger is a double bass player, a singer and songwriter from Winterthur, Switzerland. Guillaume Andre is our percussionist (cajon, djembe and more), a great singer too, from Brussels, Belgium. And Lukas Zeublin, a gifted violinist, studying at the Music Conservatory at ZHDK, has joined our BAND as well. Super excited to have them join!
