Tonight we are looking forward to a double concert: The songwriter Nina Anto from Poland and Lotti Lotti from Basel. The two met in London and have - since Nina is currently touring the continent - chosen the Markthalle living room for a gig in Basel - yay!
Lotti Lotti kicks off the evening with dreamy folk pop - look forward to first live samples from the EP, which will be released in a few months. Lotti Lotti was founded in London in 2019. Singer and bassist Yannick Bellotto (bassist of Quintessenz, among others). Yannick played numerous concerts in various projects in diverse cities in Europe. Since one year Lotti Lotti is now a solo project and forms a shrewd and optimistic sound world inspired by Dota Kehr, the Beatles or Mani Matter. In the music serious topics are addressed like the climate crisis, loss and freedom movements. However, the whole thing is wrapped in stories about fireflies and flowers. This, plus a bit of rock, pop and folk is Lotti Lotti.
Main Act Nina Anto trained as a vocalist in London and impresses with a wide vocal range with which she creates unique moods. Nina is planning an EP release in summer 2022 - we are looking forward to the exclusive performance of her songs! For the EP, Nina is currently on tour in Europe. The professionally trained pianist fuses her voice with piano and synthesizer sounds in her compositions. Her idols include Tori Amos, Kate Bush or Antony and the Johnsons.
