Eliana Burki

2016

There aren’t many musicians outside the folk music scene who are serious about getting to grips with the alphorn.

Eliana Burki was introduced to the instrument at a very early age and told her mother right away: Mummy, I want to play the alphorn!
Her beginnings were not easy, but she had the determination to sail against the wind of scepticism. A year after her initiation with the alphorn, when Eliana’s enthusiasm for the cumbersome instrument was unwaning she was taken under the wing of alphorn luminary Hans-Jürg Sommer, who maintained the established playing traditions whilst allowing experimentation. She composed music and studied singing and piano in Bern and Basel with so much success that her performance at the Blues Festival in Basel whilst still a teenager left a lasting impression on the audience. However, the alphorn remained her passion.

Eliana Burki has spent a lot of time on the road in the last few years. Her tour schedule has included South and North America, Asia, Japan and India; the 32 year old has even been in demand in Dubai. Her 2011 album “Travellin’ Root” fused arabesque and tango elements, Swiss folklore and rock, a colourful mix with bold arrangements, and she is currently putting the finishing touches on her new release "Arcadia", to be released at the end of February 2016.
