Since 2006 the Cosmonautix are on a “Rocket Balalaika Speedfolk” mission, a wild mix of eastern European folklore and own songs in English, German, Ukrainian, Russian and Yiddish language. Moderately enriched with influences of Rock, Ska and Klezmer the party cosmonauts are today the most energetic east-folk party band in universe. After the success of their debut album ENERGIJA (2011, Piranha Records) the crew drifted across a lot of countries in Europe and Mexico. With the youngest release, the EP COMMANDER RED (2019, recordJet), Cosmonautix dare the attempt to electrify the traditional folk instrument Balalaika and mix in this way in their previously known sound an extra loud portion of heavy metal. Together with an international crew, the Cosmonautix commander Captain Morgan Nickolay (Dawai Dawai / Berlin Balalaika Brothers), takes his audience to an excessive flight up to the cosmos… in this spirit: “Take a seat now and fasten your seatbelt, please!” Поїхали!
