RODAS is the name of the current musical ensemble of the Graubünden singer, songwriter and composer Corin Curschellas, which she founded together with Patricia Draeger (accordion) and Barbara Gisler (cello) in 2016. The programme includes Rhaeto-Romanic folk songs, traditional songs of the Graubünden Walser, "Canzoni" from Italian Bünden, settings of Rhaeto-Romanic poetry in all idioms, as well as Chur German songs from Curschella's own pen. 
The initiator Corin Curschellas is described as the "grande dame" of chanzun rumantscha because in her musical search for roots she has dealt profoundly with Rhaeto-Romanic folk songs from oral tradition as well as from archived collections. For years, the musician has regularly surprised with innovative new arrangements from the rich repertoire of songs of the Rhaeto-Romanic tradition. The folk song variations of RODAS are archaic, modern, contemporary and exciting like a colourful kaleidoscope.

Corin Curschellas has been regularly surprising for years with innovative new arrangements from the rich repertoire of songs of the Rhaeto-Romanic tradition. The virtuoso arrangements of the congenial accordionist and composer Patricia Draeger, who has mastered the art of arranging like no other, give the old songs a magical contemporary radiance. The young cellist Barbara Gisler complements the RODAS sound in an ideal way with her soulful, versatile and imaginative playing. RODAS means "wheels" in Romanian. The "infinitely" rotating wheel is one of the most important inventions of mankind. Everything is in a constant state of change. This is also the case with the folk songs. The old wheels from the chanuns rumantshas, the carriage, spinning and mill wheels, they stand still, - but the earth and also the wheel of time continue to turn! RODAS continue to pass on the old songs.
The trio RODAS is a live event. There is no CD yet. If you want to hear and discover RODAS, come to the concert!
