THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The prevailing wet spell in the state has dampened plans for the weekend. However, to enliven the proceedings with rhythms of jazz and pop music, a young popular German music group, Schero’s Five. The group, which held a strictly “by invitation only” music concert in Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday, is set to perform live for music fans at the Kochi Metro Open Theater on Sunday. The show is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The five-member band consisting of guitarist Scheroan Zibari, drummer Christin Neddens, keyboardist Mahir Altunel, bassist Simon Dallmann and vocalist and lyricist Peer Eric Poehlmann will make their debut to a live Indian audience on Sunday.

Members of Schero’s Five chatted with TNIE about their music and more on the sidelines of the music performance hosted by Goethe Zentrum Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi. According to Scheroan Zibari, popularly known as “Scheroo”, who leads the group, revelers in the state capital can dance not only to jazz and pop, but also to disco and melodies.

“Indians’ pop music fanfare came to light after witnessing a huge Indian audience at one of Guns N Roses’ big music gigs in Berlin a few years ago. Although we are not very aware of Indian musical culture, the visit is also a chance to experience the same,” said the young musician in his twenties.

Drummer Christin, who is the only female member of the group, said: “I have been more exposed to world music and have always been fascinated by Bollywood music, especially the fusion of jazz rhythms and traditional music counters. I would like to collaborate with an Indian artist one day. By the way, Christin, in her thirties, joined the band a few months ago for the tour in India.

The group, influenced by American musical culture, officially became a music group in 2015. They will perform covers of hit numbers by American musicians like John Mayer, Bruno Mars, Anderson Paak and many others.

The team will perform their own songs as well as classics, melodies and modern pop with a lot of improvisation on stage, which makes the music group different. Speaking on the lyrics of the songs sung by the group, Scheroo revealed a deep love for his mother tongue: “Compared to English, the German language is more profound, versatile and powerful when poems or songs are written in it. . We are preparing to release our first independent album soon,” he said.

Peer lyricist and lead vocalist Eric Poehlmann said language doesn’t matter for good music because it can touch the hearts of listeners. For him, voice and music are more than enough for a beautiful song to reach the masses.

“I write lyrics in English or German, which focus on my experiences on the journey we had taken to become musicians as well as friendships, feelings and emotions, including empathy. We create music to share happiness and positivism among those around us.
