Olicía is the band of Fama M’Boup and Anna-Lucia Rupp, based in Berlin and Dresden, Germany. There are no clear archetypes or distinct predecessors for Olicía’s very own musical aesthetics. Heavily based upon voices and loops, augmented by both electronical and acoustic instruments, all of which they channel into surprisingly immediate, concise and emotional pop songs. Fragmented, electronic Soul or Gospel, playful multilingual Global Pop, the deep emotion of Folk Music, and a Jazz-like approach of creating everything on the spur of the moment. There are no preproduced elements in their production process on stage and even fully improvised songs regularly find their way into their live shows. 2023 will see Olicía releasing a song cycle entitled OUT OF THE BLUE - a series of interdisciplinary singles in collaboration with visual artists.
Fama and Anna-Lucia have furthermore founded the label o-cetera.
