OMNI presents:

Hailing from the Washington, DC area, Les Rhinocéros delivers a crazy world in sound, blending aspects of rock, world music, noise, ambient and jazz. The trio of teenagers was formed in 2008 and has developed since then into an intense and wildly imaginative group that takes music to its extremes. Emotional, minimalistic, intense and grooving, this is music that goes beyond imagination to the edges of sanity. The group continues their sonic experiments by adding unusual instruments into the traditional rock band setting.
„AMAZING…I LOVE the music… ALL OF IT…“ – John Zorn

Mary Ocher was born in Moscow, Russia. Fate brought her to Tel Aviv at the tender age of 4 and to Berlin at 20. She has been playing with various media, be it words, sound, color or movement since mastering the craft of songwriting at the age of 11. Disillusioned by the mainstream music industry, she set her mind on accomplishing everything DIY. Other than being a stunning musician, Mary makes film, visual art, documentaries, music videos, art installations and poetry. In 2011, she was discovered by King Khan at a Karaoke Bar in Berlin. He immediately invited her to record at his legendary Moon Studios. The album „Eden“ took over a year to finish but it is finally out on Buback (Hamburg) on June 14, 2013. In 2012 Ocher toured along the German best-selling author, Sibylle Berg, for her novel „Vielen Dank fuer Das Leben“.
