VIOLA Text& Musik Eliane Amherd 2023

Viola das heisst Vilii Doch es Blüemji isch schi nit Schi strahlt mit ire Äuge Doch blauäugig isch schi nit Vam Wallis chunnt schi wohlbekannt Vam schönschtu Ort im Alpuland Jetzt wird schi Präsidentin si und alli si wer stolz uf schi

Viola, dü hesch sus in der Hand Viola, d'Regierig va dem Land Viola, und allne isch bekannt Dü machsch dini Sach mit Härz und Verstand

Scho früeh deheimu het schi politisiert Vam Papa hetsch glehrt wiemu e Firma fiehrt D' Mama het gseit: Blib unabhängig und fri Meigja wenn dü dine eigund Chef willd si

Mit dum Kollegiumslatin isch nu lang nit am Änd Ds Friburg hetsch gschtudiert dass schi di Gsetzi kännt zrugg uf Brig isch de ins Awaltsbüro Und scho het schi di CVP uf d' Lischta gnu

Steil bärgüf is de mit irer Karriera Stapi, Nationalrat schi bricht jedi Barriera Isch Dossiersicher, holt schich d' richtigu Lit Und näbubi haltutsch schich nu sportlich fit

D' Viola isch schlau und alles geit ra ringer Mit irum Witz und Charme wicklutsch mänge um de Finger Erklärt komplexi Sache dass sus jede versteit Und sogar dum letschtu Gängner der Zwifel vergeit

Und wennd schi frägsch was schi am liebschtu het De sinds Chäsmagrone oder es Raclette Am liebschtu uf der Alpa in irum Chalet Eifach eppis währschafts was willt nu meh

Viola, dü hesch sus in der Hand Viola, d’ Regierig va dem Land Viola, und allne isch bekannt dü machsch dini Sach mit Härz und Verstand

Bim VBS da schätzt mu schi sehr Der eifach Soldat und d' hochu Tier vam Militer Und eu wenns nit fer jede het gschtummu Het schi sogar nu knapp di Jets durchbrungu

D’ Viola isch vam Fach, bringt Biwegig in di Sach In der Bundeshüs Liga spilt schi jetz di erschti Giga Partiubergrifund, kollegial, transparänt Schi nimmt jede Challenge vam Departemänt

Viola, dü hesch sus in der Hand Viola, d’ Regierig va dem Land Viola, und allne isch bekannt Dü machsch dini Sach mit Härz und Verstand

English Translation Irene Walsh

Viola is a violet flower But delicate she is not Her eyes may sparkle But starry-eyed she is not She hails from Wallis, everybody knows From the most beautiful place in the Alps, she rose Now she will be president We are proud to have her represent

Viola, she has it in her hands Viola, the governance of this land Viola, and everybody understands With head and heart she takes command

As a youngster at home she talked politics already Her daddy taught her to run a company Her mama taught her to be confident and free If you want to be your own boss, missy

Her college Latin will still take her far She studied in Fribourg to know the law Practiced in Brig and right away the CVP named her as a candidate

Quickly she climbed the ladder of her career Mayor, national council, she broke every barrier She's well-read and informed, gets the right people on board And by the way, she even stays fit with sports

Viola is clever and knows how to disarm She has many wrapped around her finger due to her wit and charm She explains complex subjects so everyone comprehends And doubting opponents give up their stands

And when you ask what she likes best It's mac and cheese or some Raclette She loves it most in the Alps in her chalet Something simple and hearty, what more could one crave

Viola, she has it in her hands Viola, the governance of this land Viola, and everybody understands With head and heart she takes command

At the Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sports Simple soldiers to bigwigs give their support Though not everyone agreed everywhere She still passed those fighter jets by less then a hair

As the first violin, she knows how things run She works across party lines and gets things done She is bipartisan, collegial, and transparent and tackles every challenge within her department

Viola, she has it in her hands Viola, the governance of this land Viola, and everybody understands With head and heart she takes command

Voyage Voyage, the iconic ‘80s hit, first sung by Desireless, travels down a fresh route, courtesy of New York based singer / songwriter, Eliane Amherd.

Amherd, a Swiss transplant, who has spent her career crafting a signature sound that reflects her bossa nova soul, coupled with New York grit, not only sings and plays guitar— but also produces and arranges. What we get is glissant vocals nestled between lush but minimal layers of guitars, bass, and beats. The track harnesses the talents of such New York music scene mainstays as Rosa Avila on drums, Amanda Ruzza (bass), and legendary percussionist, Bashiri Johnson who conjures shimmery accents.

The accompanying video, created by Onome Ekeh of Futurezoo, opens up into a dreamscape of ancient symbols colliding with modern day angst, and whimsy— into flowering mandalas of subconscious activity. The musical traveler finds themselves in an unexpected playground.

Critics say: "Eliane Amherd sounds what would happen if Norah Jones let her inner Patty Smyth (of Scandal), Pat Benatar, and Natalie Cole out. This is the pop music that pop music itself forgot it could be."

"She sounds like a Sheryl Crow with a jazz and world-music sensibility."

"Eliane Amherd is the sort of performer that we’ll be hearing a lot more from if there’s any justice in the world."

Eliane is one of the hottest forces of the New York City Jazz, Brazilian and Latin scene. The Swiss-born singer, guitarist and songwriter graduated from New York’s New School University for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2000. Since then her original music and lyrics, a groovy mix of all her influences, has been creating quite a buzz.

...the highlight though was a performance by female swiss singer and guitarist Eliane Amherd at the Gala night of the festival. UB Post, Mongolia 2010

...what joy of playing, what musicality and stage presence. The spark jumped right after the first few measures into the audience of the sold out concert space. A pleasure for ear and eye - and for the heart. Jazz Club Thalwil, Switzerland 2010

Besides her performances as a leader or a featured artist in New York’s most famous clubs, like the Blue Note, Joe’s Pub, the Jazz Standard, Cornelia’s Street Cafe, Nuyorican Poets Cafe and major events like the Swiss Peak Festival, the reopening of the Silverstein Building at the World Trade Center (alongside Lou Reed, Susan Vega, and the Brazilian Girls), she also tours in North- and South America, Canada, Europe and Asia, where she performed at the Beijing Jazz Festival in China and the Giant Steppes of Jazz Festival in Mongolia.

... Eliane Amherd has a tone with a complex palette, and establishes mood easily and confidently. She has a vibrant presence. I cannot even guess what else she has up her sleeve in the way of voicing, touch and use of space, but that it is enchanting is assured. Tirthankar Mukherjee, Mongolia 2009

..Eliane strums acoustic guitar, her voice wafting over Latin percussion with the knowing silky precision of a Bossa Nova princess. Onome Ekeh for Helvetica Bold 2007

Eliane has worked with greats such as Randy Brecker, Marcus Strickland, Marc Ribot, Michael Carvin, Bill Ware, Jovino Santos Neto etc. She plays guitar in the Pacha Massive video “don’t let go“ on MTV, her song “as If” can be heard in the award winning movie “Approaching Union Square” by filmmaker Marc Meyers and her voice is featured on Jeremy Mage's song "Slippery Light" appearing on the NBC hit TV series "Lipstick Jungle". Eliane also arranged and produced the Swiss Miss Sampler “heimweh”, featuring famous Swiss artists like Eliana Burki, Nubya, Gigi Moto, Mia Aegerter etc. This recording has earned her many great press reviews, several interviews on Swiss national radio stations and an appearance on the popular Swiss talk show "Aeschbacher".

...after the opening act the singer, guitar player Eliane lightened up the concert space with her enchanted flame. With a cat like elegance she evoked Brazil and its timeless Bossa Nova but in her very own way, coloured with Jazz and Blues elements. She directs her voice with masterful presicion anywhere she wants. Warm timbre and technique without failure: Eliane has everything of a star. l'Impartial 2006

...Her talent as a soloist shines brillianlty on the Jazz scene... the discovery of the season. AMR Club Geneva 2003

Her own band consists of the best musicians the city has to offer, like the two female bass players Jennifer Vincent and Hagar Ben Ari, bass player Gustavo Amarante and the drummers Willard Dyson and Abou Diarrassouba. Other accomplished musicians you can catch on stage with Eliane are: drummers or percussionists Ze Mauricio, Genji Siriasi, Sylvia Cuenca, bass players Ray Parker, Yoshi Waki, Itaiguara, pianists Rachel Z, Helen Sung, Chris Wiesendanger and many others.

...'makeout stakeout' positively embraces the bourgeois, laying waste to the gin slums and instead erecting glistening, crystalline absinthe towers that echo to Eliane Amherd's gorgeous vocals. textura, review of david last's almbum “the push pull” 2005

...her performance, together with her charisma, fills up any ambient. Thank you, Eliane for being 49% Brazilian at heart, and 100% when you sing in Portuguese. Casa do Brasil 2009
