Stimmhorn is made up from Christian Zehnder (voice) and Balthasar Streiff (horns, accordions etc), both classically trained and with deep roots in the swiss folk music traditions.
After their first three albums Melken, Schnee and Inland they did pursued solo carreers and Zehnder ended up collaborating with Kold (as Zehnder with Kold) for the album Popple Music. Later Stimmhorn reunited with the addition of Kold as Stimmhorn & Kold Electronics for the album Igloo.
