Her stories are capturing, poetic songs, driven by her banjo- and guitar play. 

Magical moments full of sensibility and still powerful and expressional presented. 

The musician ADAYA tells us about the other side of mankind, the hidden treasures of every living being, of bright and dark periods in life.

As a solo artist she travels around the world and fully devoted, writes her own episodes with passion. 

Intense moments, in which ADAYA’s crowd can be part of.

Moments when she does it again and again, bringing them to complete silence, listening under her spell.


Longingly she sings in her songs about the mysteries of our time, legends and hidden secrets. 

Her songs «Werewolf», «I Am Born» or «Train To Nowhere» are perfect examples. 

UK-Folk-Radio gives best ratings: «This is high caliber music, both stunning and original in concept and delivery, we’re looking forward to hearing more! ».

ADAYA’s next album will be released in February 2020. 


ADAYA performs as a solo artist, or with her Trio. In accompany with guitarist Buck Curran, who gives a psychedelic touch to the songs and Jazz-musician Corinne Windler, multi-instrumentalist and for ADAYA on the drums.

Ihre Geschichten sind packende, poetische Songs, getrieben von ihrem Banjo- und Gitarrenspiel, magische Momente voller Feingefühl und gleichwohl wuchtig und mit Ausdruck präsentiert. Die Musikerin ADAYA erzählt von der anderen Seite des Menschen, die verborgenen Schätze jedes Wesens, von den dunklen wie auch hellen Kapiteln. Als Solo-Künstlerin bereist sie die Welt, schreibt ihre eigenen Episoden voller Hingabe und Leidenschaft. Intensive Momente, an denen ADAYA das Publikum teilhaben lässt. Momente, in denen sie es immer wieder schafft, dieses ganz und still lauschend in ihren Bann zu ziehen.


Sehnsüchtig besingt sie in ihren Songs die Rätsel unserer Zeit, das Mythische und Verborgene. Ihre Songs wie etwa «Werwolf», «I Am Born» oder «Train To Nowhere» sind beste Beispiele hierfür. Das UK-Folk-Radio verteilt dabei Bestnoten: «Das ist hochkarätige Musik, atemberaubend und originell in Konzept und Darbietung. Wir freuen uns mehr zu hören!». ADAYAs nächstes Album erscheint im Februar 2020.


ADAYA ist als Musikerin oder zu dritt mit ihrer Band unterwegs. Begleitet wird sie vom Gitarristen Buck Curran, dem den Songs einen Schuss Psychedelic hinzufügt, und der Jazz-Musikerin Corinne Windler, Multiinstrumentalistin und für ADAYA am Schlagzeug.


Adaya Lancha Bairacli


Adaya is a talented songwriter with honest lyrics in a unique and passionate style.

Time and time again she travels to places where the songs and cultures enrich her imagination.

Inspired by the festive medieval scene in Switzerland, as well as the international community of street performers and troubadours traveling the world, Adaya made an early commitment to  her music and has not looked back since.  

With banjo, guitar, bouzouki, zither and her charismatic voice she performs her own songs, along with a handful of Irish and English ballads and leads the band with grace and an open heart.  


Besides her band, Adaya can be found playing harp, flute, voice, and bagpipe for mystic medieval folk group Kel Amrun .

Previous bands were pagan folk band Aywa and nature folk group Pan.

Adaya also has her solo project as a Harpist, more information about the music and booking inquiries you can find here; Adaya Celtica
