Joined FAUN since 2013 -
Katja's early artistic experiences came from her family whom have been active for generations in the theater in the field of stage design, painting, sculpture as well as costume presentation.
Since the beginning of school, she sang in the school choir and began in high school her classical basic training.
Their first CD was the music of Hildegard von Bingen and thus began her love for medieval music.
On her travels in India, she learned classical Indian Raga singing and made many musical experiences.
They traveled to Hawaii, Southern and Eastern Europe and was very enthusiastic about the diversity of traditional music.
After her travels, she moved to Berlin and together with Erik Manouz and other friends founded the music and artistry theater group "Laiquendi".
They toured 7 years together with the group's music and theater productions through Germany, France and the Czech Republic.
After the group disbanded, she and Erik Manouz forms the Balkan folk band "Savica" and recorded an album.
She then continued her singing education with teachers such as Katharina Felice, Angela Wingerath, Maria Jonas (Hildegard specialist), Beata Palya (Eastern European and Gipsy music / Hungary) and Andreas Thalarowsky.
Besides the above, she'd also done training in therapeutic voice training. She is also an approved medical practitioner specializing in herbal medicine.
