Transcendent Vibes: Samborski

A new project by Andrea Samborski, Andy Hidber & Giacun Schmid:
Atmospheric, poetic, powerful, delicate, visceral, warm, ethereal, raw.

Born on Vancouver Island, Canada's west coast, where rainforest meets the ocean,
Andrea grew up amongst bears, whales and ancient cedars, before her life split across continents.
It is perhaps a result of her formative years rooted in expansive wilderness, that people have said they can “feel the space” in her songs.
Nature - branches, rock, earth and water - weaves its way in a multitude of forms through her work. The heart at its rawest as well.
Her visceral, poetic songwriting, her singing straight from the marrow, and the palpable sense of connection felt at her live shows are hallmarks of Andrea’s work as an artist.

After two decades of playing her songs almost exclusively solo, this past year has seen Andrea join forces with Andy Hidber (bass/guitars) and Giacun Schmid (drums/guitars) who also happen to be the luthier dream team from the Guitar Barn. In the cocoon of that space, surrounded by a myriad of stunningly handcrafted guitars, the three of them have been exploring the songs à trois, weaving them new nests, furs and feathers. From these sessions, the project SAMBORSKI was born.

SAMBORSKi will play its third show at Cargobar Basel.
