German Handpan Duo Alex and Malte began their musical journey together in the summer of 2014. Over the last three years they delevoped an intimate friendship and an equally intense musical project. Their music is all about the hand pan and the didgeridoo - dynamic, improvised sound - sometimes dreamy and thoughtful and sometimes rythmic and groovy. They are aiming at creating an atmosphere of pure relaxation and deep inspiration in which your thoughts can melt into dreams. Close your eyes and open your soul.

Rob is a New Zealand born, Australian bred, Berlin based Pop/Soul/Blues musician, globetrotter and adventurer.After working Australia’s tough but rewarding pub circuit, Rob packed his bags for Berlin, a city which he now calls home. In between his musical accomplishments Rob likes a challenge, having now hitchhiked across three continents, toured Indian and African orphanages and hospitals, ventured to Antarctica and travelled overland from Berlin to Australia by bicycle, train and ship. Convinced by the idea of slow travelling the singer/songwriter did the German release tour for his album „Boogaloo“ on a solar boat and took a trip through the US on a custom electric trike. Powerful vocals with humorous lyrics, passionate guitar playing and charm make him a one-man-groove-machine that runs with or without amplification.
