Yes, we’ve already been teasing it here and there and are now pleased to announce a new release for 2023. The songwriting is finished, the tracks are currently being refined and will be recorded soon. We are excited to embark on this new journey and of course look forward to sharing the finished songs with you. More insights soon!
As everything is always subject to constant change, for wazzara it was above all the role on the drum. Julia had to give up the band at the beginning of 2021 due to time constraints. The restless waves finally revealed Deniz Lebovci (Fueled by Fear // ex-Disparaged) & owner of DL Drum School) who has been crowning the band with his unique groove at our first gig & in the vid for Obsidian Skies. We are very happy that Deniz will now join the band also for our future gigs and everything else that may come!

Lyric Video by Olga Kann Art/Design
mænic (“moonstruck” in Middle High German) is a song of praise to the moon and its cycles. Wild and raw, still fragile and melodic, it reflects both nature’s relentless force and its eternal beauty, an ambivalence that builds the core inspiration in wazzara’s music.
This is the first song from our forthcoming album CYLCES (out October 31, 2021).
Barbara Brawand: vocals, acoustic guitar
Mäsi Stettler: lead & rhythm guitar
George Necola: bass

Our new album CYCLES will be revealed to the world on October 31, 2021!
On this magical night, when the gates between all worlds are open wide, eight spells will be given birth. Inspired by the moon and nature’s infinite wandering phases, CYCLES praises the end that is always a beginning.

I am very happy to announce that wazzara is now a full band!
I have never abandoned the plan to bring wazzara on stage, even though in these times it is very uncertain when shows can be played again under ‘normal’ conditions.
We remain confident and step on it, call it escapism or hopeless optimism. But! we are not only preparing a full live set these days but are also creating new material that will evolve in a full album hopefully sometime soon.
Meet the band:
Babs: Vocals, Guitar, composing (other bands: Between Giants, Isôt estrange, ex-Caladmor)
Mäsi: Guitar (ex-Caladmor)
George: Bass, composing, producing (Between Giants, ex-Lost Chapter, ex-Blasted)
Julia: Drums (Dead Milly)
I am very happy to be now surrounded and supported by these fine people and exceptionally good musicians.
And so may a new chapter unfold…
Picture: it is a great honour that we were able to work with Manuel Vargas Lepiz (Manvarle) again. He is an outstanding photographer and very pleasant to work with. Many thanks Manuel!
It is with great excitement that I introduce you to the first wazzara merch!
This beautiful maiden of the sea accompanied by otherworldly fish is crafted by none other than Joan Llopis Doménech Illustrations.
I am very proud to have Joan’s amazing art on our very first merch series.
