Daniel Salontay and Shina.

Longital are a couple from Slovakia, and 2012 was their third experience at South By Southwest. Although both members are accomplished professionals from the world of math and computer science, they’re making their mark in the musical world through tours in Europe and America.

In this interview, Deirdre Saravia talks to the duo about their travels, as well as the inspiration behind some of their best songs, including “Dragon Clouds.”

Deirdre as born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and her first paid work was at the age of 10 with the BBC as an actress on "Children's Hour." She continued to perform regularly on radio and stage for the next eight years, at which point she was informed by her parents that theater was not an option and she needed "real" work.
