The emerging Berlin-based duo NOSOYO (pronounced no-soy-yó) is composed of two dynamic artists: Donata (vocals, guitar, songwriting) and Daim (vocals, drums, songwriting). Daim is part Dutch, part Turkish and presents a harmonious, freethinking spirit. Donata grew up in Bonn, Germany and loves conceptualising, composing and confrontation. Together they collide, complementing each other perfectly, via passionate songs full of playful details and clever twists. Listeners can detect a beautiful tension within moments of experiencing their collaboration. NOSOYO is an expressively scandalous game of ambivalence, duality and moods, and yet the two create this contrast through upbeat and poised alternative pop.
In October 2016 NOSOYO was on tour with L’aupaire and therefore received Musicboard’s Support Tour Funding.
In 2018 NOSOYO was granted the residency at LePlan in Ris Orangis/Paris.
For 2019, NOSOYO is receiving a grant in the amount of 5,500 euros to prepare for their coming tour and to record demos for their third album.
