Downbeat, Triphop, IDM, Neo-Soul, Bass Music, Dupstep, Jazz – that are all insufficient terms, if you want to describe the sound of Aramboa. The real essence of the musical style the Austrian producer Moritz Scharf and voalist Elena Shirin want to create is the fusion of these characteristic elements. Energetic and complex beats build the foundation for hypnotic and expressiv harmonies of analogic and synthetic instruments, wich circulate around the subtile but still powerfull performance of the vocal tracks. In spite of sounding more electronic on the first studio-album, Aramboa`s Live-Performance is substantially driven by Keyboard, Guitar, Trumpet and the acoustic colours of live-bassoon.

So far Aramboa played at Waves Festival, Tallinn Music Week, Donaukanaltreiben, Fluc, Cafè Leopold, Grelle Forelle, Stadtwerkstadt Linz, WUK, Jazz:it, Arge Salzburg, Madhou5e Linz, Brimbamborium Festival in Munich and a lot more venues. After releasing their first Album ‘Mereon Matrix’ on slovakias Gergaz Rec. they got rewarded as Soundpark ‘Act of the Month’ by radio FM4 having several tracks on rotation.

Aramboa is:
Electronics/Production: Moritz Scharf
Vocals: Elena Shirin
Guitar: Moritz Scharf
Keys/ Trumpet: Lukas Moser
Trombone: Max Rehrl
