ZMEI3 is the indie-pop-jazz Romanian band from Berlin.
Mihai Victor Iliescu (concept, guitars, vocals, lyrics) is the brain and soul of ZMEI3. In 2011, while in Berlin, he formed the band and created the concept of a new musical style - Rough Romanian Soul. He also writes the lyrics of ZMEI3 in a very personal key.
The powerful vocals of ZMEI3 is Paula Turcas, a soprano opera singer who gave up classical music in the pursuit of a more truthful artistry grounded in the struggles of everyday life.
Oli Bott (vibes, keys, composition) writes the original music of ZMEI3, in which he speaks out all of his heart as well as his own Rough Romanian Soul. His virtuoso, explosive, flamboyant vibraphone improvisations are at the core of the ZMEI3 sound.
Inside the Rough Romanian Soul you will find love and betrayal, desire and death, women and outlaws, beauty and freedom.
You will feel inconsistent, superstitious, paradoxical, crying and laughing at the same time, tasty, absurd, unbelievable.
Step inside, and you'll take a trip to your deepest emotions.
Don't wake up
And you will feel
At break of dawn
You will remember
About her eyes
About her hair
About her breast
About her mouth
About her lips
About her whispers
She will be yours
And someone else's
You will have her
You won't have her
