Stef Kamil Carlens

‘Multidisciplinary' is a good word to characterise Stef Kamil Carlens (b. 1970). The artist, singer, musician, composer and producer combines all his activities when he performs with his Zita Swoon Group.

In the 1990s, after a stint as the bass player with dEUS, Carlens launched a multi-coloured career with dozens of CDs and hundreds of concerts on national and international stages. His record of achievements also includes theatre shows and films. He always approaches projects from both his inner child and his actual age. This results in colourful worlds that unite the uninhibited and the melancholic.

Since 2017, he has been making records under his own name, resulting in two keenly anticipated albums. They speak of a love for percussion and focus on the texture of the instruments. Even when you hear dozens of instruments, the whole sounds transparent, and the sound is inviting.
