About the Artist
Wanted Tambo Toco – That’s the band and the hand-made music of front woman Silke von Durschefsky, who writes and composes her own songs. And how she sings them! – Untamed, brilliant, unique! With a rough voice full of emotions that carries you away, grabs you and reveals heart and soul of the singer.
Always intense, the unexpectedly powerful voice of the graceful woman gets under your skin.
As she beats the congas, almost in trance, she will take you on a wild ride!
In 2003 the idea for Wanted Tambo Toco came up and in the same year Silke von Durschefsky realized the project with three musicians from the Leipzig music scene. Only one year later the first CD “Holy Dance which included eleven songs, was released. Since autumn 2007 Sabine Spiehl (violin, backgrounds), Rik Paul Ullrich (guitar, backgrounds) and Arne Dreßler (E-piano) have supported the performance of the front woman with brilliant solos and forceful backgrounds.
Influences from singer / songwriter, folk, blues, country and psychedelic; melt into a thrilling musical magic potion.
In spring 2008 the second studio-CD "Sense in Your Life“ will be released.
Silke von Durschefsky finds the ideas for her lyrics in her daily life and in encounters with people from other cultures. Above all, the life of the Native Americans is a great source of inspiration for her and helps the songwriter to create many of her spiritual lyrics. Again and again it is the belief in love and friendship she is appealing to. Often the songs speak of a hidden inner knowledge and a holy power leading the way in your life.
Wanted Tambo Toco. That’s music connecting cultures. That’s music speaking directly to your soul. Listen, dance or fly away: It’s up to you.
