The eccentric duo Karpov not Kasparov follows the rules
and strategies of chess through the action and reaction of
drums, synthesizers and vocals. Since chess is an oriental
game, they got deeply inspired by oriental folklore, which
echoes throughout their catchy, danceable songs. Their live
shows include aerobic classes, contemporary dance
performances, silent movie screenings, ballet moves and projections
of live chess games played by the audience.
