Nastja Nina and Anton Davidyants: Sokunthea

When you put a song together with just bass and voice, beautiful things happen. Here’s a great example with the duo of Nastja Nina and Anton Davidyants performing the bassist’s original song “Sokunthea.”

The song was first written as a solo bass piece, but Davidyants decided to redo it with Nina doubling the melody. The phenomenal bass playing and blend of timbres creates a gorgeous texture that’s sure to make you listen more than once.

Ms. Nina’s scatting added a lot to an already fine tune. THank you.

Absolutely great piece! Anton You are the Man! Superb bass playing! What a great choice to perform this with Nastja. Most of singers these days can’t resist making glissando all the time, especially when going up. She sings the melody chrystall clear.
I have listened and enjoyed this many times!
