Black Sea Dahu

Music / Folk, Indie / Zurich, Switzerland

Janine Cathrein was only five when she started practising the violin in an old workshop. Then came the drums. And then came her two siblings Vera and Simon. Together the threesome known as Black Sea Dahu play visceral folk music, at times poppy, other times in chamber orchestra style, but always with an incredibly warming undertone, somewhere at the crossover between summer and autumn. Since their debut release “White Creatures” (2018) and the following EP “No Fire In The Sand” (2019), the trio have become a byword for intense concert experiences and sold-out venues, outside Switzerland as well. Comparisons with Ben Howard or Big Thief are always well-deserved. Forming the band was actually only part of Janine’s school-leaving exam project, which was to be followed by the recording of a CD. The fact that it all turned into a successful music career is mainly due to the brilliant songwriting and perfect interplay between all involved. This music breathes, laughs and cries, it’s alive in the true sense of the word – and as a result is all the more impressive live.
