Originally, it was meant to be a weekend-only project: Two former high school classmates, Katharina Strobel and Melanie Luci, wanted to perform some pop songs at two schoolyard concerts ten days ago as a kind of backing band. For Ostrofried and Ernst Molden.
And then, as the duo “KaMel” (for Katharina and Melanie), they almost stole the show from the stars, winning the hearts of the audience and requests for proposals. The two 20-year-olds had their first solo concert at Bar Taro Garden last Saturday. An appearance at the neighborhood festival has already been scheduled for June 25 at 6.30pm.
The two inspire their listeners with cutting edge pop songs like “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse, “Stay” by Rihanna or “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. Daughter of yard concert organizer and high school teacher Michael Strobel, Katharina Strobel offers instrumental accompaniment to singer Melanie Luci, who sings difficult songs with precision and a great deal of sympathy.
Moreover, the duo amazes with completely independent interpretations of the songs. They both have different musical preferences: Strobel, who learned to play the piano at a music school in Neusiedl, works mainly in rock and heavy metal. Lucy, who still has a year of singing lessons at Brooke’s Music School, prefers stories. Perhaps this contrast is exactly what makes the two so great. It’s going to be exciting at the district festival: the two are performing their first song.
