April 27,

Concert @
Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld

No flowery metaphors. No worn-out stereotypes or cheap phrases. What she has to say, she expresses relentlessly open in her songs. Sometimes even brutally open. PANTHA doesn't mince words, but uncompromisingly reflects what's going on inside her. The 22-year-old singer and musician loves to play with rough edges. Even when there are bruises. In her DIY sound of German lyrics and atmospheric beats, PANTHA combines opposites and contradictions into an independent mix - and does so with a self-confident ease that is rarely found. Especially within German pop music.

Just as contradictory as PANTHA's sound is her path so far: Growing up in a family of musicians, she accompanied her mother to orchestra rehearsals and concerts as a small child. At the age of 5, she taught herself to play the piano and learned to play the flute and guitar, while singing along as a matter of course. Only by ear. And by feel. Later she discovers pop music and founds her own jazz and hip hop projects, performing self-composed songs in local clubs and bars. She breaks off her jazz studies in Cologne after two years and plays according to her own rules. PANTHA likes to look outside the stylistic box. Always lets something new emerge from creative chaos, as she demonstrates with her tracks.

She finds inspiration in the great singers. Marilyn Monroe, Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse. And of course with her greatest role model: her mother, who was pregnant with her at the age of only 19 while she was studying music. "I learned an incredible amount from her," says Pantha.

PANTHA is supported in songwriting by a renowned team consisting of the multi-platinum award-winning US producer Alex Isaak (Backstreet Boys, Trey Songz, Robin Schulz), Fayan (Shirin David, Badmómzjay, Celine) and the sought-after musician and songwriter Tom Hengelbrock (Montez, Luna, Lea).

The concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2023 musichubgermany" and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
