About the bands
Xarms is a trio of producers formed in Kyiv (Ukraine) in 2022 during the war. Their sound combines heavy drops with roaring basses, slightly ringing industrial drums, calming vocals, dark vibes, and unique dance grooves that define the main features of electronic music. The group will be attending the festival to showcase their modern, world-class musical product that was produced in Ukraine and presents a modern rock sound.
Rome, a neofolk group, was founded in November 2005 and is considered a major player within the neofolk genre. Their sound combines military drumming, horns, atmospheric electronic textures, ethereal acoustic guitars, and poetic lyrics that often focus on war-related themes, love, pain, and death. The band are also known for their unwavering support for Ukraine, having provided essential supplies to Ukrainian cities and streamed live performances on YouTube with PayPal links to increase donations. Recently, they performed a live show in Kyiv that was also streamed on YouTube, raising funds for homeless shelters, dog shelters, and supplies for civilians in Bakhmut. One of the band members has even completed nine missions, bringing much-needed supplies and assisting refugees from the war-torn country.
