OOPUS is folk on acid!

OOPUS is a folktronica fourpiece from a country of wild forests, magical bogs, sea and tech innovation. Its members fuse together thousands of years old Estonian runo songs, analog acid synths, movement triggered lights and visuals electrifying the dance floor like no other. Their powerful genre bending performances induce a ritualistic experience that erases the borders between high and pop culture, ancient and modern – a true to the roots ethno rave.

In 2022 OOPUS released a live audiovisual improvisation album “Inventing Lunar Cycle” and their 2nd studio album “Folk On Acid” in addition to several singles and remixes.

OOPUS is in charge of the Folktronica Showcase production at Tallinn Music Week, and actively curates and develops the genre globally through networks and collaborations.

OOPUS is …

Genre: acidfolk, folktronica, livetronica, electronic, folk, techno, acid, trance, live, crossover, audiovisual
