OBSCURA | “A Valediction” World Tour – Episode #3

Welcome to the next episode of our “A Valediction” – World Tour” documentary. In this video, you’ll join OBSCURA on their trip to Canada. Watch the full video for excellent live action, stunning landscapes and a glimpse behind the scenes.

While the first leg of our „A Valediction World Tour“ started in North America in February 2022, the pandemic and restrictions to enter Canada have been in full force still. We sticked to the shows despite canceling all concerts ahead of time, and hoped for the best. While two shows in Quebec had to be skipped unfortunately, we entered Canada one day after all restrictions have been lifted to perform in Winnipeg which turned into a sold-out endeavor with fans packed to the roof, stage divers all over the place and finally the celebration of live music of everyone attended that evening. Feel free to have a look behind the scenes of our 2022 concerts in Canada.“ – Steffen Kummerer

OBSCURA | Sheet Happens Feature & Interview

When Obscura rolled through Toronto a few weeks ago, Steffen Kummerer was gracious enough to get up early and head over to the Sheet Happens office to say hello! While here, he showed us some crushing riffs from “A Valediction – The Complete Guitar Transcription,” and shared some valuable insight about everything he does in Obscura.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have the opportunity to work with such talented, yet humble musicians like Steffen! Check out the riffs and everything Steffen had to say about them in the brand new “Riff Playbooks” column we just posted in our columns section (and grab the FREE tabs for everything he played while you’re there!).
