He’s an established name in the international and domestic jazz scene, she has a voice as clear as a bell, one of the most striking of the contemporary music scene. Yet the professional paths of renowned double bass player Heiri Känzig and his successful niece, popular musician Anna Känzig, didn’t meet for a long time. Recently, however, a music promotor encouraged the jazz musician to perform with his niece. The gig was enthusiastically received by the audience, and the performers clearly enjoyed it tremendously too, so – now accompanied by pianist and percussionist the quartet is very successful. The repertoire, after a couple of intensive songwriting sessions, has been increased by several original compositions

Känzig & Känzig are not just related by blood, they are kindred spirits. Both professional musicians enjoy trying out new things and are free in their approaches and creativity. Heiri Känzig is convinced: “Good musicians are able to respond to every kind of music.” And Anna also enjoys experimenting with different music styles and feels at home in several genres.

At Känzig & Känzig’s joint performances jazzy elements and popular passages fuse seamlessy and when the artists step out of their established domains the resulting magic is too good to miss.
