Formed in Moscow in 2003, Ummagma (pronounced Ah-magma and derived from Pink Floyd's fourth studio album Ummagumma) is a Canadian-Ukrainian ethereal spaced-out hybrid of dreampop, bliss rock, shoegaze, and electronica that combines resonance, beats and rhythm to create rich positive soundscapes, overlayed with delicate airy gossamer-like female and more grounded male vocals.
Ummagma has collaborated with [a=A.R. Kane], [a=Robin Guthrie] of [a=Cocteau Twins], [a=Malcolm Holmes] of [a=Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark], [a=Graham Bonnar] of [a=Swervedriver], [a=Sounds of Sputnik], and [a=Nameless (UA, Ternopil)].
In 2013, Ummagma won the Alternative Eurovision hosted by Britain's Amazing Radio, representing from 21 countries, as well as 2 Independent Music Video Awards for 'Human Factor' in Australia (including Best International Pop Video). In 2014, Ummagma won another Alternative Eurovision hosted by Britain's Pure 107.8 FM, and again picked up two Independent Music Video Awards.
