Born 1972 in Singen am Hohentwiel (Germany), Susanne Cordula Welsch started playing the violin at the age of 6. During her nearly ten-year stay in Hamburg and Bremen (1992-2001) she studied cultural science, music science and German language. Her musical focus during this time was pop and jazz music.
In the mid-nineties she founded the tango duo “Por Dos Cabezas” together with pianist Judith Hafer, and the Argentine tango became her greatest passion.
This was motivation for her to move to Rotterdam and study from 2001 to 2006 violin at the Argentine Tango Department of the “Rotterdam Academy for World Music” with Martijn van der Linden and Micha Molthoff . In 2004 she founded “Cuarteto Rotterdam” together with the bandoneón player Michael Dolak.
Since summer 2007, she has been living and working in Berlin as a freelance musician and violin teacher.
In addition to her diverse concert activities, she regularly leads tango workshops, such as at “Musica Viva” or the “MuBaTangofestival Kreuztal”.
