Biography

Praha, Czech Republic (2002 – 2008)

Khoiba was a Prague, Czech Republic band, which formed in 2002 and split in 2008. Members included: Ema Brabcová (now with Luno), Filip Misek (now aka Dikolson), Petr Šámal and Yonatan Omer.

The musical history of the members of the band reaches far back. Filip Míšek and Petr Šámal met many years ago and played together in a band called “Hummingbird”. At about the same time, Filip Míšek started with the band “Roe-Deer”. This is where he met the gifted singer Ema Brabcová. Pretty soon they both knew that they wanted to make a different sort of music - and Khoiba was born. The name Khoiba, by the way, is a fictional creation of bassist Petr Šámal. Nowadays, Ema Brabcová, Filip Misek, Petr Šámal and Yonatan Omer concentrate exclusively on Khoiba - with due success. The sound of Khoiba is an inspired interplay of electronic music and clear, melodious guitar tunes, a creative down-tempo mix full of ideas, that creates an exceptional and special atmosphere. A great part in this surely has Ema Brabcová with her distinctive and expressive voice that immerses you in the partly spheric and catchy Khoiba tunes. The track “Half In” (Track 2 of the debut album “Nice Traps”) is a very good example for this. Khoiba describes their style as “pop and atmospheric music, full of melancholy and positive emotions, sometimes very dynamic, somtimes soft”. Each track has its own history and its own inherent emotions. Khoiba are not only convincing studio musicians, but very approachable with live performances all over Europe, which they meticulously prepare and enjoy.
