Boa (Russian: Боа) is a Russian band founded in 1988 by Igor Knyazev and his cousin Sergei Serin. Boa’s musical style, a blend of Jazz, Easy Listening and Latino, has been influenced by elements of Ethno-fusion and World beat. It explains the choice of the name Boa: a short name, with the same meaning in many languages, quite exotic in Russia and advocating something tropical.
Boa’s performance credo is to combine bright, distinct melodies and unusual harmonies with ironic and smart lyrics. The current nucleus of the group is Igor Knyazev (main and background vocals, music, and lyrics) and Igor Shatsky (music, lyrics, arrangement, guitar, piano, percussion). In addition, from time to time Boa hires session musicians to diversify its repertoire.
