Unterbiberger Hofmusik:

For the first few seconds the music seems clearly rooted in the group`s homeland:

„typically Bavarian“ or so it would seem when these wily musicians start playing. Hardly have they managed to reel in unsuspecting local jazz-haters when suddenly anything seems possible…!


Franz and Irene Himpsl and their three sons are the heartpiece of the Unterbiberger Hofmusik-all of them, with exeption of the 9 year old Franz junior, classicaly educated musicians. The Himpsls are crossing musical borders for more then 15 years now – together with top-class guests, or lets better say friends, out of the best international musicians. Together with some of the best of their Genre like Claudio Roditi, Jay Ashby and Matthias Schriefl they compose tunes whitch irritate and delight at the same time. Folk? Jazz? Latin? Balkan? Brass?- All of it and not really it at the same time!
