Massive waves made by an iridescent sound

They are one of these scarce sound jewels that only can emerge from a mixed and radiant cultural metropolis: Since 2010 Donauwellenreiter ("Danubesurfers") have proved to be one of the most exciting and artistically complete formations in the booming music city of Vienna.

Their music, full of sophisticated sounds and rhythms, leaves connoisseurs in absolute awe. Pop, jazz, chamber- and world-music elements combine to create the unique Donauwellenreiter sound-aesthetics.
They are one of those few ensembles – such as for example the British Penguin Café Orchestra – who understand how to celebrate their own serious musical ambition as a true pleasure for listeners.

“Wow. If you want something you'll enjoy so much, that's gleefully out of the ordinary, that'll drive you nuts, this is what you want to be hearing. Well done”
(Chris Spector, Midwest Record, 2014 USA)
