Global Kryner

Global Kryner


Six musicians from widely different fields have joined up to a)transform the Oberkrainer sound from its beer-tent bliss to a serious world music genre, b)without losing the musical fun and puns, c)and to prove that every song, every melody – whether pop, jazz or classical – can be ”kraine


Clarinetist and global.kryner founder Christof Spörk, is political scientist and musical cabaret producer (Salzburger Stier 2003 with Landstreich), and plays everything from Cuban rhythms to Styrian and Bulgarian sounds.
Trombonist and heroic tenor Sebastian Fuchsberger, well-known as the charming dynamo of ”Mnozil Brass”, performs ”globally” as brilliant yodeling tenor and groove coordinator on the bass trombone.

Accordion master Anton Sauprügl is music school director in Purgstall, Musikantenstadl-veteran and Oberkrainer expert, all in one.
Guitarist Edi Koehldorfer, excellent as Oberkrainer swinger, is also known as one of Austria’s best jazz musicians and has already played with the likes of Stephane Grappelli.
In experience and brilliance, a class by himself: Graz-born trumpeter Karl Rossmann. High Arturo, low Chet...brass experts will understand.

And last but not least: the new global.kryner singer Sabine Stieger from Lower Austria. After a fulminant global.kryner year with the long-standing Salzburg soul and pop singer Anne Marie Höller, the five ”globuli” have managed to discover a vocal goldmine who at the young age of 24 seems veritably born for the stage.
