Sound check for a good purpose
For more than 18 years, we have been on the road as «Samichlous & Schmutzli» for this one purpose:
Every year, December 6th conjures up a light of hope in the eyes of these children!
Year after year, we think of something special, slip into our red-white-black and brown robes and make their hearts beat faster with our involvement. Last year, for the very first time, we even picked up a microphone to record the single «Come Together» with the help of producer Ben Mühlethaler and Music Star finalist Raquel Rodo. What really delighted both children and us: the single became a smash hit! All the earnings from this single as «Samichlous & Schmutzli» went to the Swiss Children’s Cancer Foundation. And, believe it or not, 11’000. - Swiss francs from the first stage in 2012!
The good thing about the stick
When we talk about a first stage, a second has to follow. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen: this year in 2013, during the second stage, we want to make a CD with a few Swiss artists plus another song for «Samichlous & Schmutzli». Our idea met with a warm welcome from the very start and found a ready ear: Ted Scapa, the well-known cartoonist and artist spontaneously agreed to design the cover of the new CD. Bruno Dietrich, an equally popular as well as talented musician is going to compose a new song for the «Samichlous & Schmutzli» CD. We have also contacted a large number of Swiss musicians and producers. We hope we can count on your support!
