2017 was the busiest in the history of OSOG. After years of hard work, the group of Florentine street musicians became an international phenomenon when invited to perform concerts and festivals in America and Europe.
In February, the band toured the United States for the first time in the world’s largest and most important folk music festival and were praised as a new and original voice in the American scene.
The first visit to the United States and the warm embrace by the American audience were an important milestone for the band. OSOG chose to spend the last week of the journey in a studio in North Carolina, where they recorded her third album, Radio Católica, which is entirely available for listening right here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cnZlQ1zlaE
The new album, influenced by Gospel music and sacred music, presents a new, cleaner and sharper line in OSOG’s work – rooted music with universal influences that explores the boundaries between sacred and secular. It is also the album of the reunion with Katie Danielson, the first singer of the band who has been living and working in New York for several years and returned to record with the band after a decade. In honor of its launch, all Tel Avivians and New Yorkers will gather in Israel for a festive performance at the Zone club and perform the new songs in the ensemble on which they were recorded.
