We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to finally perform again in Germany. This time we were invited to share the stage in a project with amazing singers called "Voices of the North". Saturday we sang in Pirmasens and Sunday in Ingelheim together with our good friends from Singoritas.
You can now see what the cover will look like on our upcoming album NORD. It's been created by Faroese artist Heiðrik á Heygum.
Dopplers took part in the Online Festival eAAVF this year. Due to Corona, Aarhus Vocal Festival had decided to create an online festival called "Reaching Out", where people from all around the world could "gather" and meet old friends online, while participating in online workshops, and following a LIVE STREAM of recorded concerts and talks. Dopplers participated with a short live concert part together with RAMA
Dopplers will go in to the studio to record the final 4 numbers for our upcoming album this coming weekend. This time a little different, as we will all be in the studio at the same time, recording it "live". We have teamed up with our good friend Frederik Rosenkjær-Wind and his studio in Nordsjælland.
Yesterday Astrid had the great pleasure of being interviewed by In Unison Podcast about her work with Concert Design, Dopplers, AAVF and Ubuntusong.

Dopplers had a great time recording another 4 songs. This time in Casa Malling, which is Astrid and Jim's home, transformed in to a super studio. With those 4 songs also recorded, we only have one more studio session - then the raw recording is done.
Dopplers has been in the studio just before summer-break to begin recording the first half of the upcoming album "NORD".
The album will be recorded with the producer Henrik Birk Aaboe (who also produced our two EP's) in Corona Studio in Thorsoe
In the midst of recording, we will soon start a "pre-order" campaign for our new album, so that we can finish the other half in 2021.
We have also been filming a lot of video together with our friend Chad Charlton.
In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Denmark's freedom day,
May 4th, - we have created a video celebration of peace featuring original
footage from the liberation in Denmark and our original music - Colors of Peace.
Join us in celebrating the message of peace - light a candle and "let the music lead the way".

During the summer we will have a lot of exciting things on the programme, and we have decided to use the first few months of the year preparing. Hopefully we see you out there.

Here is a picture from the day.

Dopplers had a wonderful day in Lyngby Saturday the 13th of June. Baadfarten in Lyngby had invited us to sing on their boat yet another time - this is almost a tradition - and they call the event "Sang på vandet". It's always a wonderful time on the lakes around Lyngby. We then had a pop-up concert at Lyngby Kulturhus, and then ended the day in Charlotte's beautiful garden, next to Lyngby Sø.
