Finnish singer-songwriter Mirel Wagner has her very own enchanting musical style. Don’t they say this about everyone, one might argue? Yes, but just listening to the first chords performed by this artist with Ethiopian roots one will agree with this assessment. According to the German Spex magazine, “there is hardly a way song writing could be any more minimalistic, straightforward or rigidly constructed than Mirel Wagner’s austere music”. And to describe the sound and atmosphere of this music as merely melancholic would fall short of the truth. The woman singing here fascinates not only with her special voice but in particular with the depth of her pieces emotionally expressing endless love for no less than music itself.

Concert series running from November 19th through 21st featuring Bianca Casady & the C.i.A., Gazelle Twin and Mirel Wagner
„Can't catch me, I'm syntax free, I'm preconceived, preternaturally (…)“ Sonic Youth – The Ineffable Me
Three utterly different musicians visit brut for the concert series The Ineffable Me: Bianca Casady, one half of the artsy folk music duo CocoRosie, includes video art and choreography in her new solo project; electropop musician Gazelle Twin confronts the terrors of puberty in a hoodie; and Finnish artist Mirel Wagner plays gloomy blues music with a sub-pop touch. All three of them refuse to submit to the still male-dominated dictate of the pop industry, like to play with attributed identities and amaze by their ineffable, intractable musical creations.
