Global Kryner was a band from Vienna , Austria . In April 2004 they released the debut album of the same name, with which the band toured in Germany.

Band history

Global Kryner was an idea of Christof Spörk , who worked from 1992 to early 2005 as a clarinetist, lyricist and singer in the group Die Landstreich . His first partner at Global Kryner was Sebastian Fuchsberger , who was active at Mnozil Brass until the end of 2004 . With the singer Anna Hauf, the accordionist Wolfgang Peer, the trumpeter Wolfgang Sohm and the long-time Christl Stürmer - guitarist Hardy Kamm, Global Kryner initially played one of the first concerts on May 4th 2002 in Scheibbs on the occasion of the Lower Austrian festival under the project title "over.kryner" Folk music festivals AufhOHRchen .

Anton Sauprügl joined the accordionist in autumn 2002, and Edi Köhldorfer became guitarist in autumn 2003. Ännie Höller and Thomas Gansch finally completed the line-up with which the first CD "Global Kryner" was recorded between November 2003 and February 2004. Released in April 2004, this CD soon received gold status in Austria and was in the Austrian charts for over 40 weeks.

In 2005 Global Kryner won the Amadeus Award and took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev with the song Y Así as representative of Austria. However, they were eliminated in the semifinals. In 2006 Global Kryner won the Bonn Satire Prize Prix Pantheon.

On January 28th 2010 Global Kryner presented their new CD "Global Kryner versus The Rounder Girls " in the boxing club Box Union Favoriten, moderated by Sigi Bergmann . Accordionist Christian Bakanic played in the supporting program .

At the beginning of 2013, Global Kryner announced the breakup of the band for the end of October 2013, there was also a big farewell tour under the motto "Servus" in which the musicians once again (um) stopped by.


The Global Kryner assign their style neither to folk hits nor to pop music . The compositions are characterized by jazz harmonies , changing time signatures, rhythms and tempos. In general, the music is settled in the soulful-jazzy area. It is noticeable that no drums are used and that the " drive " comes from the bass trombone, guitar and accordion.

On the band's website it says:

"Six musicians from all corners of the world have now

  1. to translate the Oberkrainer sound from the beer tent bliss into a serious world music genre ,
  2. not to lose the wit and
  3. to prove that every song, every melody from pop , jazz and classical music can be granulated. "

The fact that the musicians presented their debut album on the same evening in the Musikantenstadl and in the important Viennese jazz club Porgy & Bess is characteristic of the ensemble's style and audience .

While their first CD still consisted of adapted foreign compositions, their second album Krynology contained titles they had composed themselves. The third CD WEG also has its own tracks, but these are only marginally in the Oberkrainer sound. The group has evolved towards cabaret jazz .
