Anina is the head and founder of bayou. She's composing to escape from daily life and to get back to balance. She was member of several pop and jazz band projects. Today she acts as a singer and a songwriter and she teaches teenagers, also in music. Her virtue is a positive attitude towards life. That's why some people get irritated whenever they get a compliment from her spontaneously. Anina is a Taurus as a zodiac sign, she doesn't avoid fights and she does not give up too early.
After studying jazz in Bern for two years, Demian worked as a bassplayer in different jazz, funk, and Latin groups. He decided to continue studying at the Academy of Popmusic in Mannheim. Due to his Argentinian roots, he pushes bayou’s new compositions towards a more energetic and rhythmical more complex mood. Demian is surfing through life, so you definitely never get bored.
Moving from Lithuania to Italy, from Italy to Denmark, from Denmark to Switzerland, Dalius is a master of the art of living. After his bachelor in jazz trumpet in Copenhagen and a master in electroacoustic composition in Zurich, Dalius is now working at different projects as a musician and creator. Due to his immense knowledge in programming, he knows exactly how to shape bayous unique sound character. Eventhough at first sight he does not seem to be amused - once he starts laughing, it's hard to not be attached.

Fabians soli stimulate your 'birdfeelings', so get ready to fly!
bayou found a sound tinkerer and technical experienced pianist in one: Dimitri Kindle. He will surely influence bayou’s sound by spreading more glamour where it's needed and add more deepness where it already seemed to be deep. Get ready for that shit.
You can also listen to Dimitri at Circus Oh lala. When he's not playing, he's either teaching at Kantonsschule Burggraben St.Gallen, playing chess or challenging his body at the gym.
