Sometimes painfully melancholy, then exuberantly alive, always passionate and usually a little mystical. This is KATIJU.
Under this name, Evin Küçükali and Julia Schüler found each other in Dresden two years ago to interpret oriental and Brazilian folklore in their own way. Inspired by family backgrounds and other musicians, they create an intimate sound that is characterized by Evin's warm, smoky voice and Julia's artful guitar playing.
They prove that this unusual mix of longing, far-eastern melodies and lively samba rhythms works not only in their concerts but also on their debut album, where KATIJU invites their listeners to sink into another world.
„In these times, when musical sounds are so weighed down with electronics, KATIJU brings in a beautiful breeze! A natural great voice and a superlative guitar player.“ - Carlo Domeniconi
„Impeccable pulse and rhythm, good sound, instrumental technique put at the servie of interpretation, love and respect for the musical style approached, Julia Schüler has everything I want to find when I listen to a guitar. The natural, warm voice of Evin Küçükali is perfectly complemented in this walk by melodies and rhythms of different cultures.“ - Ricardo Moyano
