Black Sea Dahu (CH)

Urban Folk

Listen to the soft melodies suspended in mid-air. Listen as they dance with the deep, earthy voice of Janine Cathrein. It wouldn’t come as a surprise that this group from Zurich is causing quite the stir. Their first album reflects the substantial amount of work Black Sea Dahu put into writing the lyrics and composing the music. Those on the listening end savour each note with delectation that does not subside even when the songs are put on repeat. It is what happens when you listen to dark folk music expressed with such heartfelt sincerity.

About Black Sea Dahu

Black Sea Dahu consists of singer-songwriter Janine Cathrein and a gang of musical cohorts. Think: Modern-day Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. But instead of dropping copious amounts of LSD and driving around in a VW mini-bus, they trip out on sound and studio-related cabin fever. They also make some of the most searing, contemporary, Urban Folk around!
