Inching ever closer to the imminent release of the next album, MÄDCHENORCHESTER, Munsha drops the first single, Familienporträt, which is part of the original stage play soundtrack Mädchenorchster – Musical theatre with classical and electronic music reminiscent of the members of the Women’s Orchestra of Auschwitz‘. (Prod. spreeagenten ©2019). The play is based on the girls’ orchestra, active in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, during the imprisonment of its members.
Familienporträt represents a rip in a canvas, a delicate incursion into an imaginary cellar as if to secretly investigate the scents and tones of dusty memories.

Composed, produced and perfomed by Munsha at FarF Studio Berlin.

Available on Bandcamp and digital music stores.
A Munsha production, with the support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe through Kulturprojekte Berlin.

“Munsha’s chameleonic sounds carry an almost epiphanic sense of bewilderment and wonder”.

“Das »Mädchenorchester«
ist ein Wunder
der Stilisierung”.

SHORT BIO
Daniela Lunelli aka Munsha is a Berlin-based singer, cellist, and composer, who works and performs with theatre, installation, video art, and multimedia.
Her approach to music came at an early age through studying piano, which culminated in academic study on the one hand and her active involvement in the punk and rock scene on the other.
Her double background, as an academic and as a performing musician, has created a style in which the rhythmic grit of rock music nestles and coexists in unconventional harmonic structures; concrete sounds merge into melodies; harmonic suspensions into electronics.
The focus of her sound lies in contemporary, avant-garde music and vocal research.
Munsha merges academic experience, transcultural and rock music, experimentation, and technical knowledge into a whole, ranging her productions from electronic, noise, and drone music to songwriting and soundtracks. 

Over the years she has composed music for theatre, dance and performative art, sound installations, and interdisciplinary productions, besides her solo project and several collaborations. 

In 2021, she premiered as writer and director of the play “Alices Geschwister”, for which she also composed and performed the score.
She is the music director and composer of the Berlin theatre company spreeagenten.

Since 2001 she is also dedicated to teaching multiple musical disciplines and vocal coaching through the Cross-Over Technique.
