Charlemagne

Sunday evening at prime time in the naTo: Charlemagne - something like Leipzig's Sophie Hunger. The band around Wencke Wollny plays fine pop with jazz affinity. Vocals-guitar-drums-bass complemented by piano trombone.
Support: Nils Wédtke

The band was founded at the end of 2012, the first concert in March 2013, followed by others in Leipzig, Dresden, Weimar, Hamburg, Chemnitz and Freiberg, a video shoot in the summer of 2013, studio recordings in the fall of 2013, a CD release and a tour of Germany in January 2014. But no matter where it takes the six young musicians: Charlemagne sets up a living room on stage, both musically and visually - and takes everyone with him. And that means: towards pop and singer-songwriting, towards jazz, towards mastermind Wencke Wollny's poetic lyrics and compositions that might remind some of Sophie Hunger.
Wencke Wollny (voc), Jannik Gehnen (g), Simon Kutzner (p), Antonia Hausmann (tb), Christian Dähner (b), Clemens Litschko (dr)
