DOS PAISES (Ukraine)
“DOS PAISES” is Spanish and means: 2 countries.
Why: Because the two musicians of this duo come from two different countries, which can hardly

contributed very much to the success.

In addition, three musicians of the band, still play in other groups or have obligations as a soloist,
which often also makes scheduling very difficult.

well-known country songs.
They place great value on handmade, honest and authentic
Country music. Apart from acoustic guitars, harmonica and
Joerg’s baritone voice, they largely dispense with technical tools.

connects across borders and generations!
