Catharina BoutariGermany Hamburg
“Catharina Boutari is Hamburg’s goddess of ideas in how to make your mark on the soundtrack of this city. As a singer and songwriter with a great sense of melody, as a label manager with an eye for the unconventional and things that are rarely dared, as a theatre director of vivaciously entertaining productions with depth.” (Reeperbahnfestival) C.B. aka Puder is a musician, producer and opera director. She runs her own fe*male record label, Pussy Empire Recordings. Born in Austria, Boutari combines diverse identities with a self-possessed verve, a skill she learned from her Egyptian father & German mother. At 14 she started as a rock singer. Today she focusses on producing current international pop and Jazz that defies the norms of traditional music recording processes and eschews conventions. Since 2016 she has been hosting the "Puder Session Tapes”: 10-day collab-songwriting sessions at home and abroad leading to live-recordings with fans in the recording room. Full risk, a great experience, lots of energy! In 2021 Boutari started international CoLabs with Artists from several European countries and was invited, this April, for the artist residency at Westway Lab in Portugal. Since 2019 she’s the vocalist of Hamburg all fe*male Jazz Septett Sir Bradley.
