There’s no denying that music is powerful and can lift the soul.
So if you’re in need of a feel good, uplifting jam, the performance below is sure to do the trick. And it’s nothing modern. There’s just an unspeakable beauty and timelessness with what you’re about to see.
What makes this performance unique and special, is that the artists rocking the instruments are actually father and daughter! You’ll learn to love this genre if you haven’t already. It’s boogie woogie time!
A passion for music runs deep in a lot of families.
The Jacksons, the Osmonds, and the Gibb brothers all had global success with their musical abilities. Bob Dylan’s son Jakob broke into the music scene – while Miley Cyrus followed in her country star dad’s footsteps as well. And who can forget when Natalie Cole performed a tear-jerking, virtual duet with her late father Nat King Cole?
Now watch these talented and related musicians that come from Austria.
Martin Pyrker is a renowned piano player from Vienna, who first discovered his passion for the instrument (and the blues) at the age of 17. He’d already been playing the drums for several years.
Pyrker became fascinated by boogie-woogie and during the 1970s performed concerts with other famous pianists he’d become associated with. They led to Austria’s first boogie-woogie album, Boogie Woogie Session ’76, and ignited the genre’s growth in Germany and Austria.
Since then, Pyrker’s entertained crowds both at home and internationally with his skills – performing as a soloist and with other legendary musicians too. He’s also created records over the years and according to his online bio, has over 100 original compositions.
Pyrker began performing with another very talented artist. His own daughter Sabine.
Sabine Pyrker began learning the piano at the age of seven. Two years, she pursued her passion for another instrument – the drums. At 13-years-old, Sabine took the public stage with her father for the very first time, playing percussion. When you grow up surrounded by music, it comes natural.
Over the years, she’s also developed her own successful music career.
Pyrker taps those keys boogie-woogie style, while Sabine perfectly blends in with the drums. Together, the music they produce is energetic, uplifting, and makes you want to tap your feet. It’s captivating, and really enchanting to see a father daughter duo play good music.
While boogie-woogie piano is entertaining to observe on its own, Sabine’s drumming skills are undeniably amazing. At one point, she’s given a solo that really showcases her talent. She could go and do rock and roll!
This girl’s got banging skills!
You can see how much passion they have for music.
Pyrker’s hands move like lightning on the piano and there’s no question he’s mastered boogie-woogie.
