belle affaire

Pirmin Setz, drums, darbuka, vocals, composition

Philipp Z’Rotz,  clarinet & saxophone

Peter Gossweiler, double bass

Peter Zihlmann, piano


He plays the drums and the darbuka, writes music and lyrics and sings in French. Lucerne-based musician Pirmin Setz does not allow himself to be stylistically restricted. His band «belle affaire» plays finely woven acoustic music with chansonesque poetry and world folk influences. The singer adds to that his calm tone and gives his texts a dark rendering in the spirit of the French language. This is music that reflects everyday life and its sensations and draws its essence from the joy of making music together.

After the album «demain», published in 2018, «belle affaire» released the CD «huit heures du matin» in autumn 2021 on the label unit records.
