We'll then be on tour in Germany by the end of May (check dates HERE)... with more dates coming up this autumn (we'll be publishing everything here and in our newsletter as soon as we know).

17 Hippies für Kinder - Titus-Cover

On the 18th October 2013 our first album for children TITUS TRÄUMT (Titus dreams) will be available in shops throughout Germany! The songs were written to tunes from our repertoire - all from our book 17 HIPPIES für KINDER (17 Hippies for children). A 24 page booklet with colored illustrations and lyrics in German follows our hero Titus through dreamlike stories as he meets ... the sad fro prince, the owl, the snow girl, the piglet that does not want to be pink and many more! HERE is a first impression.

The CD (and t-shirts, buttons, music books, stickers and more) is available in our 17 HIPPIES ONLINE SHOP.

If you are in Berlin on 16th November 2013 - we will present the album with a short concert at Dussmann. And if you can already sing along ... you win! Oh, and we have started to do an English version, so stay tuned for more!

17 Hippies sing in french

A song with Fredo from "Les Ogres de Barback" singing a duet with Kiki, the adventures with "Les Hurlements d'Léo" as "Hardcore Trobadors" and "Marlène", our little big hit in France... all those stories we share with our neigbours are beautiful, our friendship very much alive, as our love for France has always been. This compilation is a present to everything that has been connecting us these last 15 years. Merci a tous. ("17 Hippies chantent en français" is released in France by Buda Musique. From May 2013 the album will also be available online).

Now out in France - with more to follow!

We’ve recorded an English version of our song "Blumen im Glas" (from our PHANTOM SONG album) for the French movie "Rue Mandar" that hit theaters in France on January 23rd. HERE have a listen to Kiki singing "Flowers in a Glass" that also is on the movie soundtrack.

Cover Rue Mandar

And, what’s more... beginning of April a compilation of songs we've sung in French over the years called "17 HIPPIES chantent en français“ will be released by our French label Buda Musique. For 15 years we’ve now been playing all over France, and to be honest... we really like being your neighbors, friends, lovers and... tourists! And talking about friends: Fredo from the Ogres de Barback, Laulo Kebous and Les Hurlements d’Léo are part of the pack... la vie est belle!
