Still Alive Tour 2021
Einlass: 19.00 Uhr
Beginn: 20.00 Uhr
Twin brothers Josef and Jan Prasil were born in Germany and raised in Italy. With parents originating from Czech Republic and Australia, they eventually moved to Australia to further propel their music career.
Finding themselves in the soundscape of a modern Simon and Garfunkel with influences from the likes of Ben Howard, Kings of Convenience and Kodaline, Amistat are definitely best enjoyed live. A safe place to be, to feel, to heal and to inspire. Their vocal harmonies create an unique synergy which stems from their contrasting personalities and musical styles blending together. Their authentic lyrics speak of what they have learned to be true in life and love, sharing their stories and songs about these lessons most of which they wrote while on the road.
Born with the closeness and understanding that only twins could share, Josef and Jan produce a unique synergy through the use of tight knit harmonies, shaped by an honest, storytelling vocal tone. Amistat is able to communicate their inspirations, drawn from a life on the road, infusing their sentiments, hopes and ambitions to develop a unique and honest message to their audiences.
Since 2012, Amistat have released four EP’s, ‘It’s Not Words’, ‘Somewhere Sometime’, ‘Nostalgia’, ‘Love and Light’ and their debut album ‘Parley’ which saw them embark on a number of Australian and European tours including performances at some of Australia’s finest Festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival, National Folk Festival, Fairbridge and Nannup. The duo further won the Marton Guitar Emerging Artist of the Year 2018 Award at the Port Fairy Folk Festival 2018.
Following a two month tour with Australian band „Sons of the East“ in 2019, playing 49 shows in 15 countries, Amistat have come off their own headline tour through Europe and the UK celebrating the release of their EP ‘Love and Light’, which saw the duo off to their second home, Australia for a national tour earlier on this year.
Having just celebrated the release of their latest single ‘Build A Home’, Amistat are getting ready to release their final single along with their new EP `Still Alive´. This will be seeing the duo off on their headline tour across Europe in autumn 2021.
