Prague, Czech Republic (2002 – 2008)
The band, founded in May 2002 and at home in the Czech capital Prague, consists of Ema Brabcová, Filip Misek, 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. Whether in their home country the Czech Republic or in France, Germany, the Netherlands or Austria, they have impressed the audience at more than 50 gigs and festivals. "Live performances are very important to us and always very special events full of emotions. We are pleased when the audience gets carried away and when we get their positive feedback", says the band, and one can tell that music plays a big part in their lives.
