Kirstin Spieler

The percussionist and fire artist has been one of the first members of the Bangoura Group. Over many years Kirsten has been working with African musicians and dancers. She is particularly interested in the dialogue between dance and music, between new instruments and traditional sounds. Kirstin appreciates the outstanding energy of African percussion as well as the dialogue between the performers in its unpredictability. Playing the cajón, calabass, xecere, agogo, djembe, dunduns Kirstin and her love for African crossover music is very enriching for the whole Group.
