For the band DVA, music critics have reserved the label "unclassifiable". The duo of Jan Kratochvíl and Bára Ungerová materialize their original musical visions by myriad means: their idea of what a tango should sound like is fulfilled by beatboxing, while fragile folk compositions are backed by clarinet. They also draw on the aesthetics of cabaret or circus. They then describe stories from their own worlds in their own invented language - which is why their music has come to be called "folklore of non-existent nations".
Two years after the band's formation, DVA released their debut album Fonók (released on Indies Scope in 2008), thanks to which they received attention not only in the Czech Republic (the album was nominated for the annual Anděl music award and the music video for the song Nunovó Tangó won the main prize at the Anifilm festival), but also abroad. The BBC's leading music editor Charlie Gillett ranked the debut among the best albums of 2009, and the 14-song album also helped DVA to the 34th place out of 850 nominated bands in the respected Wcme chart. It was the release of Fonók that kick-started their continuous tour, during which they managed to tour virtually all of Europe. However, DVA's songs have also reached Japan - Fonók's record is available there as well.
The focus of DVA's work lies in live concerts, where the duo is often accompanied by original projections by artist Markéta Lisé. DVA's concerts are especially renowned for their playfulness and creativity - both members change instruments on stage with complete ease, including guitar, live strings, saxophone, clarinet, wind midi, megaphone and various toys.
