Wazzara: With exploration of wider musical horizons…..

Wazzara - Cycles

The dreamy music of Wazzara is dedicated to and inspired by the transforming, obscure and poetic nature of water. The moongaze and postmetal band last effort is entitled Cycles and FFO Alcest, Cellar Darling, In The Woods. Wazzara’s first full-length album led to exploration of wider musical horizons, incorporating spellbinding, doomy riffs into the EP’s legacy of melancholic, dreamy and celestial soundscapes. Cycles deals with a nature-based & water-bound concept! Wazzara is definitely one of the most original Swiss acts and with a spiritual soul as a bonus. Wazzara have a completely unique style & aura.

Wazzarais the culmination of a themed solo project from the former lead singer of folk metal band, Caladmor. Inspired by nature’s infinite wandering phases, Cycles praises the end that is always a beginning.Taking initial inspiration from the natural poetry of water in motion, enrapt listeners have found themselves moved by the otherworldly, ethereal and magical offerings of Swiss-based songwriter Barbara Brawand since 2015.

Line-up:

Barbara Brawand • Vocals, Guitar

Mäsi Stettler • Guitar

George Necola • Bass

Julia Kapp • Drums

The water-bound concept has been extended to uncover unaffected but fragile lyrics dealing with vulnerability and feeling out of place in a world where sensitivity is considered a weakness.

A moon motif nurturing untamed, sacred femininity has also been woven into spells for healing old wounds.

In 2019, Barbara collaborated with Icelandic composer and musician, Árni Bergur Zoëga (Helrunar, Árstíđir Lífsins, Carpe Noctem), to give the world Wazzara first EP, Zessa.

A show quickly followed in early 2020, alongside Grift and Wolcensmen; the first and last to grace the stage before a long and terrible silence descended over the concert industry.

Nevertheless, instead of allowing weeds to choke the banks of creativity, Wazzara has continued to wind its course and met the year’s end having grown even stronger, composed an entirely new set list and become a full band:

Barbara Brawand (vocals, guitar), Mäsi Stettler (guitar), George Necola (bass) and Julia Kapp (live session drums).

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6045 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
