The Berne musician clique around Oli Hartung, Eric Facon and Beda Senn and several well-established protagonists of Switzerland’s music scene are coming together for a common cause: the project «ISNT NITS» is a homage to the Dutch cult band Nits. The concert «ISNT NITS» will take place on 3th May. Additionally, Jurkzok 1001 will contribute a short perfomance based on the band’s lyrics, which he wrote especially for this concert evening.

The project «ISNT NITS» includes the production of an cover album with songs by Nits, reinterpreted by Swiss musicians like Büne Huber, Heidi Happy, The Weyers and many others. Some content of the album was recorded in our studio in January 2014. It will be released on 2nd May 2014.

«ISNT NITS» Tribute Concert | 3th May 2014 | 8 pm | Schauspielhaus Pfauen

Dechen Shak-Dagsay | Asia trip


On the basis of good personal contacts which Dechen and her team were able to build over the last years, she decided to make her album «JEWEL» also available in the Asian region. As of early summer 2014, it will be in stores under the name «ASIAN JEWEL».

Aside the CD, this version also contains a DVD with with shoots from the concerts, New York, as well as videos which show Dechen doing Tai Chi patterns. The combination of Tibetan mantras and Chinese Tai Chi should act as a message of peace. Besides, Swiss landscapes are highly popular in Asia – accordingly, the outdoor scenes feature spots in Ticino and Engadin as well as the mountains Titlis and Bürgenstock. Also, the DVD is offered with chinese subtitles – and interviews with the JEWEL ensemble.

To make the music even more accessible to Asians, Dechen and her producer Helge van Dyk could rely on the support of Chinese flute master Tam Po Shek. He introduced them to Mrs. Shau Lin, member of the Shanghai Chinese Orchestra, which plays her Erhu on some songs on «ASIAN JEWEL». Additionally, these two musicians are also featured on Dechen’s upcoming album «DAY TOMORROW», also to be released in Autumn 2014.
