As well as the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring renown Swiss artists. In 2013 she was a candidate of the first edition of "the Voice of Switzerland”. 

"She sounds like what would happen if Norah Jones let her inner Patty Smyth (of Scandal), Pat Benatar, and Natalie Cole out. This is the pop music that pop music itself forgot it could be" - This is Book’s music  

 

"Eliane Amherd is the sort of performer that we’ll be hearing a lot more from if there’s any justice in the world."- Jazz, Blues & the truth  

 

Dawn Drake & ZapOte




Slovenian-American bassist, conguera, and singer-songwriter Dawn Drake leads this worldbeat-meets-funk ensemble, which breaks down cultural barriers by incorporating everything from Afro-Cuban jazz to hip-hop to samba into a soul-shaking mix. Her original music and her poetic lyrics spread messages of universal consciousness, delivered with heartfelt vocals, and are joined with the irresistible grooves of latin percussion, funky bass, swinging hornlines and virtuosic improvisation.

AS LOLAS


 

Five hardcore NYC Pros joined forces to rock your world with screaming guitar solos, thundering drum rolls, funkafied bass lines and 4 voice heavy harmonies to revive Brazilian Psychedelic Seventies Rock à la Os Mutantes! Ever since their first concert in Harlem’s “Shrine” in February 2014, the band was taking NYC over by storm, appeared in venues like BBKing, SOB’s, Nublu, Brooklyn Bowl etc. and toured Europe 2014 and 2015.
2018 As Lolas chilled out for a while, due to the jam packed calendar of all band members. AS LOLAS are back at DROM  - don't miss this!
