Dagobert Böhm was born in Mannheim, Germany in 1959, a city known for its tremendous wealth of musical tradition. He attended the Waldorf schools in Freiburg and Schloss Hamborn, Germany, studying music and the ancient acoustical art of violin making. His interest in the classical music of east India was the reason for making his own sitar. At the age of 16 he began to perform his affective guitar style, in local clubs and folk festivals.
Böhm’s first LP, “Sound of Wood” released in 1982, earned extravagant praise from the critics. “Acoustic Moods” (Delta/Jazzline) released in ’87 found an exited audience. From Japan up to USA and Canada, critics agree in the quality of his music.
His Production “Morning Flight” was elected as one of the 5 best instrumental productions of the year 1993 in Spain.
In this year “Acoustic Moods” was re-released on Delta’s Laserlight label with worldwide distribution.
