The Swiss vibraphone player Sonja Huber and the Belgian vocalist Eva Buchmann met at the Jazz Institute Berlin in 2007. They founded their duo "Lottchen" and started exploring the world of duo playing...

Lottchen plays whatever fits their unconventional combination of vibes and vocals: deformed popsongs, jazzstandards, original compositions... Genres happily collide in Lottchen's repertoire, combining text and instrumental singing in a sensitive way. The acoustic variety in the vocals is also extensively found in the vibraphone's accompaniment through all kinds of contrasting soundscapes and different "prepared mallets".

Over the years Lottchen established an almost magical interplay, unique and intense. This intense rapport also convinced the jury of the international jazz competition in France: Lottchen won the Crest Jazz Vocal Concours 2011. The Belgian/Swiss duo appeared at some renowned festivals including Jazz à Grignan, La nuits de tous les Jazz, Crest Jazz Vocal Festival, etc.

After the release of their single-handed debut album "Lazy Afternoon" in 2009, Lottchen had the chance to play concerts in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and France. Their upcoming album will be the result of an enchanting encounter at the RecPublica Studios in Poland, recorded in spring of 2012. google1bdfd6ddf6352937.html
