Der Panther (abbreviated as DP, is an experimental, cosmic-rock, tropical, flamenco band originally from NYC, London, Madrid and Bogotá, currently based between New York City, Madrid and London. There is little information about their real names and persona. In their performance there are contributions from various kinds of musicians but on stage they usually appear as a duet behind a big white canvas. On this canvas they project 3D-Mapping videos and images that mutate with their live performance. The group runs their own record label Evolving Tracks [1] on which they have released their own material.

History[edit]

The Band[edit]

Der Panther is well known for their mysterious performance and polemic appearances. They consider them selfs a medium with the music they create and perform, and what seems like a barrier with the audience when playing live behind a white canvas with projections, they actually create an intimate and human connection with the people.

Inspired by a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, they decided to call them selfs Der Panther after performing with different artistic names.

Live Performance[edit]

Throughout their history, Der Panther have been fascinated by light and its nature, behavior and peculiarities. Often taking their cue from the theatre we all live in, these pioneering musicians include in their live performance dynamic lights, reflections and videos which directly creates a whole experience as a viewer and a listener.

Der Panther have shared stage with Emeralds, Com Truise, John Maus, Holy Other, Fleet Foxes, St. Vincent and more.
