Kulturtreppe — Samborski & Lost in Lona

MUKS Museum Kultur & Spiel Riehen
Saturday, 06 July

For four evenings, the “Kulturtreppe” (culture stairs) will convert the yard of the MUKS into an open-air concert venue with bands and voices from the region.
This evening will be opened by Samborski, a trio that has only recently started making music together in this form. It brings together three highly musical people and very different worlds: Singer, songwriter, and namesake Andrea Samborski was born on Vancouver Island on Canada's west coast and grew up surrounded by bears, whales, and ancient cedars before spreading her life across different continents. Her musical work is rooted in the wild expanses, as the forest, the wind, the earth, and the water are close enough to touch in her songs. Poetic, often lyrical texts, intuitive songwriting, and her warm voice, paired with a pinch of Canadian wit, have made Samborski a welcome act at open mics and on various stages, and her solo EP “Before the Walls Fell” has so far only been available physically at her concerts. After two decades of playing her songs almost exclusively solo, Samborski teamed up with Andy Hidber (bass/guitar) and Giacun Schmid (drums/guitar) last year. The three began to immerse the songs in new worlds of sound, surrounded by a multitude of handmade guitars. These sessions gave rise to the band project Samborski, which will release its first songs in 2024, bringing Samborski’s voice to the digital music world for the first time.
Lost in Lona will ensure that the second part of the evening will also be magical: the Basel-based band led by Lidia Beck and Konstantin Aebli attracted attention with their debut EP in 2022 and has already given audiences goosebumps on various stages in the region (including at the STIMMEN Festival in Wenkenpark). With crystal-clear voices and beautiful melodies, the two sing about enduring and overcoming personal and social crises, drawing strength from melancholy, and creating music that conveys calm and hope, as if in the eye of the storm. While they have so far mainly presented their finely produced music as a duo, for their next album, which will be released in October, they have opted for a band sound reminiscent of artists such as Big Thief or Phoebe Bridgers. You can experience this live with Catherine Tang (keys, synth, backing vocals) and Luca Glausen (drums, backing vocals).
Entrance is free but there will be a collection.
