Details

This concert is one of our 2018 Living Room Concert Series where you can see musicians in an intimate setting, have fun, relax and meet new people. Our home is on the river and provides a serene and creative atmosphere for our concerts.

We welcome Andre and the Omedas. Encompassing world rhythms, east meets west violin, and folkloric storytelling, the music takes you on a journey. With Andrea and Max leading the charge the project has evolved as they have moved around the world, collaborating with a diverse array of multi-cultural musicians in Switzerland, Mexico, Costa Rica, Croatia and many other stops in between.

Midnight Eyes, the band's first EP released in January 2018, is the culmination of years of collecting distinctive influences from around the world. The album bridges cultures, taking bits of inspiration from the sounds of western, swing, gypsy, rumba, and latin creating a fusion that comes together to make the sound unique to Andre and the Omedas. The bands first release was recorded and produced in Zurich, Switzerland and Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.

7:00 - 8:00 Potluck Dinner
8:00 - 10:00 The Concert

We will begin with a potluck dinner. This means that everyone brings food to share: a main dish, salad, wine or dessert. Please bring something vegetarian.

Cost: We will "Pass the Hat" for our musicians: suggested donation of 20 CHF.

*Fundraiser too - If you are inspired and would like to help, there is an optional additional Donation for Sustainability of our Precious Planet: In addition to just having fun and hearing wonderful music, I am hosting these Living Room Concerts also as a fundraiser to fight climate change. It's a wonderful opportunity to do our part. So, there will be a separate bowl for these contributions. Learn more at our evening concert.

**Please look at the directions that I give to my home. GPS does not show the easy way to get to the Limmat Promenade in the Altstadt of Baden. My house is a simple 4-minute walk from the train station if you take the outdoor glass elevator (cool)
