ABOUT

Jan (GER) & Jannike (GER-SWE) are a duo based on the Canary Islands who creatively mix jazz and pop writing and composing songs in which one can find the most diverse musical influences. Far away from genre clichés they create their very own musical world with an unmistakable style and sound.

 

By the use of multiple instruments such as melodica, voice, guitar, piano and percussions they expand the sound possibilities of a conventional duo.

 

Their music and their performances are characterized by detailed arrangements, musical sensitivity and Jannike's impressive voice, which quickly captivates the attentive listener.

 

Although the two have known each other since 2012, they have only started working together since 2019. After studying music in Freiburg, Germany and then in Dublin, Ireland, they moved to Lanzarote, Canary Islands from where they have been building their musical career.

COLLABORATIONS

Jannike works as a singer and pianist and Jan as a guitarist. Together they play regularly at weddings and other events.

They are also part of SISUCUNDA, a free jazz, avantgarde collective by the Finish-Danish bassist and composer Otso Kasperi Mielonen.

Additionally, they work as composers and arrangers and have already worked for theatre and short film productions such as “I” directed by Catagogo Theatre Collective or "180 Man" by the Irish filmmaker Cearúil Swords.
