From: Styria, Austria
TUBONIKA is a young talented duo with the successful approach to redefine the traditional folk music sound. And in doing so, Tubonika is igniting an infectious musical firework. The Styrian duo is on a quest to create something out of the ordinary and has found its destiny in the connection of the old with the new. Respectfully breaking with tradition, the two young musicians Jonny Kölbl (harmonica) and Tobias Weiß (tuba) are bringing back old traditional folk music sounds into the now, while mixing it with elements from other music forms and styles. The pieces of Tubonika include sounds from jazz, classical music, world music and even pop. An unusual musical mix that captivates the listener from the very first second. Tubonika have been selected as NASOM “New Austrian Sound of Music” act 2020-21.
