wazzara give a new shape to the Swiss folk song „Guggisberglied“ which was first mentioned in 1741 and is well-known for its unique, sad melody. It is originally scored in Bernese German (one of the Swiss idioms) and has a beautiful and great power in its dissonance, which in wazzara's version was a strong driving force for the composition and realization. The song tells of a lost, unfulfilled love symbolized by a mill wheel, standing still at the end.


Äs isch äbene Mönsch uf Ärde -
- und dsVreneli ab em Guggisbärg
und Simes Hansjoggeli änet am Bärg -
Wo nit cha mit mir si.

I ha di doch nie vergässe - Simmelibärg!
I ha immer a di dänkt.

Dört unge i der Tiefi - Simmelibärg!
Dört steit es Mühlirad.

Das Mühlirad isch broche.

wazzara emerged 2015 from a themed solo project of Swiss singer and composer Barbara Brawand and over time evolved to a full band with additional band members George Necola (bass), Mäsi Stettler (guitar), Tom Kuzmic (guitar) and Deniz Lebovci (drums).
