Some of the Dacha residents are musicians, and some participate in radio production. Here’s what we’ve got going on:
Matthew Ocone and Isaac Sharp both graduated from Eastman School of Music and now teach and perform on guitar.
Check out Matthew Ocone here.
Isaac also attended Manhattan School of music, check him out here.
Lily and Matt also have a Jazz Duo that performs jazz standards and songs in French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German.
RADIO – Many of the Dacha folks are also into community radio.
DEEP CUTS – Marietta Synodis went live with her show Deep Cuts on WRFI 88.1 Ithaca Community radio – Deep Cuts is a a show where she invites a guest to reminisce with her over the art of the mix tape. Lily volunteered to be her first guest with a mix she made about her immigrant experience which she called Immigrant R Us. Check it out here.
RADIO CLASSROOM For a while Lily and Matt made a few recordings for a radio class on classical music. This was an attempt to discuss classical music in a more accessible way for an average listener (like Lily who is not classically knowledgeable). They called their show Classically Trained and some parts were played on WRFI 88.1 in Ithaca NY. Here are a few rounds of the show!
