IKARUS by Olivier Baumann

IKARUS is a contemporary / groove / jazz quintet consisting of Ramón Oliveras (composition, drums), Anna Hirsch (vocals), Andreas Lareida (vocals), Lucca Fries (piano) and Mo Meyer (upright bass). Their singular sound is based on continuously permutating polyrhythms, fluctuating grooves, organic improvisations and an enchanting blend of male and female vocals. The compositions continue to evolve thanks to the nature of their live shows, and tend to reappear in new versions on their full-length records. To date, IKARUS released a total of three LPs on Nik Bärtsch’s boutique label Ronin Rhythm Records and toured Europe and Japan.
