Since 1994 the Dutch world music band Ot Azoj has been playing many a festival in the Netherlads as well as in the rest of Europe.
The band explores 'new roots and old grooves' from an imaginary country, called Molvania. This land, allegedly with the muddiest party-scene in all of Eurasia, comes to life in the compositions of Ot Azoj. Klezmer-rumba, Balkan swing, Turkish-Latin and a host of other musical influences are added to the original sound of the band.
