band. Anja Kowalski
The lyrics in German and English, reflect the “Heimweh”, a feeling similar to the portuguese “Saudade”or to the Blues. The music immerses you in an authentic world that is both fragile and complex.
Listening to Anja might remind you of Marlene Dietrich’s melancholy, Robert Wyatt’s honest fragility or Hanne Hukkelberg’s playfulness. The spectrum of the band’s music goes from Einstürzende Neubauten to Bill Frisell.
What shines in Wolke is its uniqueness beyond any musical convention. Anja speaks to you directly while the music opens a space for the dialogue.
The group was created in 2009 and subsequently released a self-produced EP the same year. In 2015, the project releases its first album with NAFF Rekordz.
