Andreas Schaerer was born in Visp in 1976 and lives in Berne. A beatboxer and vocalist, he is one of the most talented sound artists in Europe. As well as being able to imitate perfectly a whole range of percussion instruments, he also displays unparalleled versatility as a singer, be it as a classical tenor or in the realms of death metal and traditional pop.

He showcases his talents in more than 120 concerts a year in various guises and is currently involved in five projects: Hildegard Lernt Fliegen, Rom/Schaerer/Eberle, Andreas Schaerer & Lucas Niggli, Das Beet and Schaerer/Oester. Alongside these, he frequently collaborates with the greats of jazz and improvisation, including Bobby McFerrin and the ARTE Quartett. Schaerer won the ZKB Jazz Prize in 2008 with the group Hildegard Lernt Fliegen, which translates as “Hildegard learns to fly”.
