Welcome to Wootton's Play Area!
In Wootton’s Toy Story the stage is the playground where five musicians tell their fantastic tales. Samuel Wootton, Silvan Strauß, Sebastian Wehle, Alex Eckert und Daniel Stritzke are the characters. With humour, insatiable curiosity and passion they interpret the Bandleader’s earthy rhythms and unique melodies.
The music is a reflection of Samuel Wootton’s artistic versatility, with the improvisational freedom of Jazz, the incorruptible grooves of Hip-Hop, the intimacy of Chamber Music, and the aesthetics of Ethnic Music.
All five musicians are inspired by each others creativity, interact and form the foundation for solo sequences – an exuberant band. The result is original music that defies categories. Likewise the Bandleaders extensive collection of percussion instruments, revealing dazzling acoustic vistas from all corners of the earth.
