Köln - Cologne, Germany

The name CEMBALESS plays on the group’s lack of a harpsichord (cembalo) in the continuo, a staple for most early music ensembles. Our own acoustic arrangements, the connection between early and contemporary music and especially the joy of conveying this music to an audience are very important to us.

Founded in 2014, we have developed a broad repertoire filled with songs and dance music. You will experience rhythmical and pop music sounds as well as soft and lovely melodies. We love to try out new settings and invite our audience into an intimate but beautiful world of music- so challenge us with your ideas!
