Guido Richarts

Vocals, double bass, bodhrán, piano

The all-round musician, who made a name for himself in his home town of Aachen principally as a rock and pop singer, came to Dresden in 1999 to study singing and double bass. Since specializing in the study of “Wereldmuziek” in Rotterdam, he has increasingly dedicated himself to regional styles, including Argentinean Tango, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music, Klezmer, Balkan and other folk styles, as can be heard in his band ZIGANIMO. He met Jan Heinke >> during his degree work on overtone singing. He joined STRÖMKARLEN in 2006. He is still occasionally active as a studio musician, composer, arranger or performer in various line-ups, as, for example, in the main role of FAUST in the rock opera of the same name. In addition, the three-time father works as a teacher of voice and various musical instruments.
