Listen to Satteli on soundlcoud




Satteli are a Swiss yodel duo: sisters Louise & Helen Curtis-Streich. Born of a desire to honour their Swiss heritage they perform beautiful, haunting Swiss natur yodel and lyrical alpine songs. The songs they sing are a mixture of traditional and contemporary, including some of their own compositions. Traditionally this is a vocal style, lyrics only being added in the mid 20th century

This musical union has emerged from the bond of growing up closely, from singing together when toddlers in a musical family, to the present day as two gifted musicians creating and honouring the music they love to perform.

Satteli perform regularly with The Holcombe Alphorn Duo, Britain’s only alphorn duo. Helen and Neil Grundy, both professional French Horn players, have been playing alphorn for years touring the UK, as well as the Swiss alps.

The sisters have also sung as part of other groups performing at many festivals, events and radio features including, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Leeds, Off The Tracks, Holmfirth Festival of Folk, Wath Festival, Saltaire Day of Dance and at the Howard Assembly Rooms in Leeds, where they supported The Warsaw Village Band as part of vocal quartet Samzeo. They have also appeared at Switzerland’s largest 'Jodlerfest' in Interlaken

 They both started playing instruments and singing at the age of nine, going on to study music, Louise at Huddersfield University and Helen at Leeds College of Music, where they received their bachelor awards. 


Louise and Helen also offer  vocal workshops which have proved very popular here and in Switzerland

What audiences have had to say about Satteli:

''Your workshop was fantastic at Belper Singing Day, where we learnt 'Sing Es Lied Fur Mi'.''

''I couldn't believe the power of the sound they made!''

''Louise and Helen Curtis combine the simple, lyricism of traditional Swiss alpine songs with fresh contemporary pieces. They taught 'Sing es lied fur mi' with an introduction to how to find your yodelling voice for participants.'' (The Chevin Singers)
