Erika Stucky  (CH)

The Swiss singer and performer with the unmistakable voice mixes completely uninhibited alpine sounds with pop and avant-garde jazz. Erika Stucky is difficult to define. This is shown by the title of the program “PING PONG”, which she performs together with her producer and musical partner Knut Jensen on stage. When she starts with “Across the Universe” from the Beatles and he begins with “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. And then suddenly she sings “Bohemian Rhapsody” and he “Across the Universe” - then it is great musical Ping Pong. There is hardly time to breathe. And yet ... As Erika Stucky creates her program in a long arc, she allows her audience to have an emotional break and then moves on to the next wave on the musical roller coaster. This is high level concert dramaturgy and an unprecedented combination: mini accordion plus ukulele plus laptop. “Serious fun!” (Rolling Stone)
