    STEREOFYSH

    Lysann Zander, vocals
    Gunnar Zander, guitar, electronics, backing vocals
    Lars Zander, saxophone, bass clarinet, backing vocals
    Christopher Noodt, keys
    Benny Glass, drums

    Orania.Stage

    A lot has happened around Stereofysh since their debut album "The Race", which "...can unfold its magic on the dance floor or just chilling by the river bank" [DasFilter]. Two years later, the very personal album "Ohana" was released, inspired by their tour through the USA and to Hawaii. Right in the middle of the late summer of 2020, the Berlin family trio Stereofysh released TINY REVOLUTION, which couldn't have been a better match for these months. In a time when nothing seems to fit together anymore, the longing for light electro pop songs and memories of the good old days in the outdoor pool with an ice cream cone awakens. For Stereofysh fans this EP is a logical development of the previous albums, for new friends it is the perfect kick-off into the band's electronic sound aquarium.

Passionate and "explosively charismatic" (New York Times) in live performance, he is a driving force behind the reinvigoration of the mandolin repertory. Pianist and Composer Omer Klein's music is "borderless" (New York Times) in its organic assimilation of widely diverse sources of inspiration, as he continuously "pushes mainstream Jazz concepts into the future" (Time Out New York).

After a period of working in a studio, he soon started to produce and record the pieces he was composing.

Originally from Istanbul, D.$AHIN came to Germany in the early 1990's with her family as refugees and was granted asylum and eventually citizenship as a teenager. Growing up between the two worlds of traditional Turkish music (she studied Saz, the Turkish 'guitar') and western pop music shaped her instincts as a singer early on. D.$AHIN ´s debut single “SHINE” was released in February 26th 2021.

For this he has shifted the drums to his feet, which allows him to play bass (hammond organ) with his left hand and keyboards with his right. Those who know Matthias' playing style can look forward to particularly tight and masterful grooves. For this evening he complements the 'system' with the extensive expertise and international know-how of his longtime companions and friends Tilmann Dehnhard (flute), Robby Geerken (percussion), Alfred Mehnert (percussion) and Tino Derado (piano). This first-class line-up is a guarantee for a captivating, rhythmic evening that is exciting in every respect. The sound of the quintet is a mixture of virtuoso instrumental groove jazz and funk with latin influences.
