Stompin’ like a Locomotive, fragile as a flower: Cari Cari are Stephanie Louise Widmer and Alexander Köck. They first met backstage. Just weeks later Stephanie left for Australia. She returned one year later armed with both a Didgeridoo and a Jaw-Harp. The duo then spent the summer in an old house by the lakeside, writing and recording their debut „AMERIPPINDUNKLER“ in the basement.

In 2014 Cari Cari released their debut to worldwide critical acclaim. Their first single “White Line Fever” was featured on blogs worldwide and featured in US TV series, including the award-winning “Shameless” and a tour that led the duo as far as to the Australian East Coast. They returned in February 2017 with “Nothing’s Older Than Yesterday”, which is a product of three years full of searching for the exciting, the unseen and the unheard. Living in London, Hamburg and Melbourne since the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Amerippindunkler’ the two-piece stole little bits and pieces from each city: East London’s boldness, Melbourne’s DIY-attitude and the fascinating weirdness of Tokyo. Cari Cari distilled all these features into their trademark sound – articulating it for the first time on their newest cut “Nothing’s Older Than Yesterday”.

In 2017 and 2018 Cari Cari has performed at a wide range of festivals, taking their audience’s hearts by storm at The Great Escape, Eurosonic Noorderslag, Primavera Sound, Metronome Prague, Linecheck Milano and many other occasions. After an exceptional performance at Waves Vienna Festival they received the coveted XA Music Export Award, convincing an international jury of their special live skills. The duo is currently working on their debut album set to be released in late 2018.
