Fatima Dunn composes music for film, dance, radio play and theatre. As a multi-instrumentalist (cello, voice, piano, musical saw, glassharp, little instruments) she plays, records and produces her music herself. She specializes in songwriting and instrumental cello-music.
Born in Zürich, Switzerland and classically trained in cello from the age of seven, Fatima started singing in several bands. From the age of 17 she started taking singing lessons, both jazz/pop and classical. She obtained a musical degree in 2009 from WIAM (Winterthurer Institut für aktuelle Musik) and finished her master studies in Composition for Film, Theatre and Media in 2013 at ZHdK (Zürcher Hochschule der Künste).
Fatima Dunn is also live on stage as "One-Woman-Orchestra". She uses an amplified cello, her voice and a foot-controlled loopstation to record layer upon layer of cello and vocals, creating wonderful, haunting songs.
Her newest album, Birds and Bones, will be released on March 23rd 2018 with the Swiss Label TOURBOmusic.
