Translated from Mordvin "oyme" is a soul.
Music of OYME is like a soul, it's multifaceted and contradictory.
Oyme's repertoire consists of traditional songs and laments in the Mordvin languages: Erzya, Moksha and Shoksha. Modern progressive sound envelops Mordvin folklore thin and transparently like a fog, which is like an exhalation of the earth covering fields at dawn. At the core of the band's music is a rare authentic Mordvinian polyphony - the "heart" of OYME. Electronic sounds underscore the uniqueness and sincerity of the "heart", revealing integrity and spiritual richness of Mordvin people (ethnos) to the world.
