OU brings you a Mediterranean joyride of vivacious original songs by Sardinian composer Ersilia Prosperi: Folk jazz with fiercely funky rhythms ~ topped with lush vocals sung by all 7 in Sardinian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English!
“(singer) Fadda and the band succeed in blurring boundaries between jazz, world music and boldly poetic soundscapes.” • katie bull, The New York City Jazz Record — VOX: ESSENCE OF COALESCENCE
(on “SCRAMBLED!”) “…from the first listen it reveals a fresco tinged with eccentricity and savage irony, experimentation, improvisation and a rational anarchy of sounds.” • Monica Straniero, La Voce di New York — OU, an Egg of Music, from Sardinia to the States
Summer 2017 will bring OU and multi-instrumentalist and producer Amy Denio together again, to record their third album in Seattle, and to perform in the Northwest and beyond, melding folk, rock and jazz, busting genres and blurring boundaries. The band can’t wait to return, and we are accepting inquiries as we build their next U.S. tour for June and July.

Produced by world-renowned composer and producer Amy Denio, OU’s second album, “SCRAMBLED!” is receiving strong praise across both Europe and the Americas. The album, crafted with Floyd Reitsma at Litho Studios (Pearl Jam’s studio) in Seattle, is available on Denio’s Spoot Music label in collaboration with Public Eyesore Records.
B Dahlia Presents was fortunate to work with OU and Denio on two West Coast tours in 2014, and during a performance at Zodiac’s in Petaluma, CA, the band was joined by B3 Organ phenom Wil Blades. With the help of cinematographer Joshua Guerci and audio engineer Chris Chappell, we recorded that performance of Paese di Stronzi:
