Ines Brodbeck, born 1981 in Arlesheim, grew up in Baselbiet with Cuban roots and lots of music. She worked in agriculture for three years after graduation, and was already travelling at the tender age of 20 years old. Amongst other places she travelled through Havanna Cuba, the home country of her father, who had already passed away. It was a place that brought her tremendous musical inspiration. Not long afterwards it became clear to her that the path she treads belongs to music. She decided to get a degree in music at the ‘Musik-Akademie in Basel, department of Jazz, Latin-Percussion’.
Since her graduation from her masters degree in 2010 she has been working as a self-employed musician and composer. During the last few years she has gained a plethora of experiences with a number of different bands and theatre productions. Her debut album, Fiction Folk, appeared in 2012 on the south-German label <>. The womens trio (INEZproject) together with two other singers led her into using her voice more. It also inspired an increased
usage of the guitar as an additional instrument on stage, as well as a tool to aid in composition. With the grand formation “INEZ <>” she successfully brought a grandiose live band onto the stage while also publishing a selfproduced album.
