Juri Kussmaul - was born 1986 in the mountians of Northern Kyrgysthan and was raised by Bears! BIG ones! or German rooted Russian musicians. I never can remember which. He moved in 1993 to Germany. He later moved to Berlin and for two years studied Architecture from 2006-08 and Sculpture/fine art from 2008/14 at KHB-Weissensee. Since his childhood he was sourounded by musical influences and physical education. Known by many as the Human bear Juri has trained years in many different kinds of art (sound art, acrobatics, martial arts, acting, pantomime, dance, music and twirling English gentlemen) with the idea of finding a way to connect those disciplines.
