Dust of Soul

Dust of Soul are POSITIVE MUSIC POWER – the inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned music duo that com­bines an dis­tinc­tive strong, unique voice and an intu­itive, pow­er­ful piano. 

Sask­ia Stäu­ble, known pro­fes­sion­al­ly as “Dusty” (born 1981 in Basel), is a Swiss singer, song­writer, com­pos­er and moti­va­tion­al coach. She is the first singer and moti­va­tion­al coach to com­bine both art forms to cre­ate a pos­i­tive impact on audi­ences through music.

This unique mix and their ener­getic per­for­mances on stage led Dust of Soul to estab­lish the new music genre POSITIVE MUSIC POWER. 

Dusty is a spe­cial singer due to her pow­er­ful and ver­sa­tile singing skills. Her voice is often described as soul­ful, expres­sive and sur­pris­ing, and she has a wide vocal range that allows her to sing both high and low notes with ease. In addi­tion to her tech­ni­cal skills, Dusty is also known for her stage pres­ence and intu­itive inter­ac­tion with audi­ences. With her pow­er­ful lyrics she has an uplift­ing effect on the audi­ence and moti­vates them to find inner strength and trans­form life into pos­i­tive ones.

She has a mag­net­ic ener­gy that touch­es people’s hearts and her per­for­mances are often described as a stim­u­lat­ing and inspir­ing expe­ri­ence. 

Dusty’s dis­tinc­tive voice and dynam­ic stage pres­ence as a singer and moti­va­tion­al coach have set Dust of Soul apart from a mere con­cert expe­ri­ence and have con­tributed to Dust of Soul’s success.


Michael Oder­matt, known pro­fes­sion­al­ly as “MiKey” (born 1989 in Lucerne), is a Swiss pianist, com­pos­er and music pro­duc­er. He is known for his pure­ly intu­itive expres­sion on the piano and his abil­i­ty to cap­ture the essence of Dust of Soul visu­al­ly and to pro­duce music.

This leads to the two artists being insep­a­ra­ble and unique togeth­er. 

MiKey is a spe­cial pianist due to his intu­itive abil­i­ty and unique approach to piano play­ing. He is known for fus­ing clas­si­cal piano tech­niques with mod­ern pop and soul music, cre­at­ing a sound that is both dynam­ic and innovative.

MiKey’s piano play­ing is often described as expres­sive and emo­tion­al and he has a gift for cre­at­ing intu­itive arrange­ments live on stage at the moment that also show­case his tech­ni­cal abil­i­ty. In addi­tion to this tal­ent, MiKey is also a tal­ent­ed com­pos­er. 

His pas­sion for music and ded­i­ca­tion helped spread Dust of Soul as a unique and excit­ing music act.


Dust of Soul are known for their image rein­ven­tion and musi­cal ver­sa­til­i­ty. Each of their songs has its own orig­i­nal expres­sion, which Dust of Soul also con­veys visu­al­ly in music videos. The change­abil­i­ty in the expres­sion of their songs sur­pris­es the audi­ence again and again. Exact­ly because of this lived cre­ativ­i­ty, Dust of Soul are authentic.

Dust of Soul per­form orig­i­nal songs writ­ten and musi­cal­ly com­posed by both artists. The music is about nev­er giv­ing up on a dream and empow­er­ing our inner pos­i­tiv­i­ty. But the musi­cians not only con­vince with their song­writ­ing in the tra­di­tion­al sense, but also with their tal­ent to intu­itive­ly cre­ate songs live on stage with the ener­gy of the audi­ence. This cre­ates an unprece­dent­ed close­ness between artist and audi­ence and is called Music Soul­ing. 

Music Soul­ing is a unique and inno­v­a­tive approach to music to con­nect with your­self on a deep­er lev­el and cre­ate an expe­ri­ence of pos­i­tiv­i­ty with­in yourself.

Dust of Soul’s intu­itive musi­cal pow­er can be a trans­for­ma­tive heal­ing expe­ri­ence. There­fore, “Music Soul­ing” has the poten­tial to move peo­ple for­ward and bring about pos­i­tive change.

With their intu­itive way of “read­ing” ener­gy and reflect­ing it in a music per­for­mance (Intu­itive Music Read­ing), Dust of Soul have already had a sig­nif­i­cant pos­i­tive impact on the health and men­tal strength of numer­ous peo­ple in all industries.


Pos­i­tive Music Pow­er, as Dust of Soul call their music, is their musi­cal con­cept that aims to spread pos­i­tiv­i­ty, inspi­ra­tion and empow­er­ment through their music. It is their phi­los­o­phy that dri­ves them to cre­ate music that empow­ers and moti­vates audiences.

Through their unique blend of gen­res includ­ing pop, soul and clas­si­cal music, Dust of Soul infuse their songs with pow­er­ful and mean­ing­ful melodies and lyrics that inspire con­fi­dence and per­son­al growth. Her music often touch­es on uni­ver­sal themes, such as belief in one­self, and res­onates with audi­ences around the world.

“Pos­i­tive Music Pow­er” is not just about the music itself, it is also about the effect it has on audi­ences. Dust of Soul believe in the trans­for­ma­tive pow­er of music and its abil­i­ty to heal, inspire and bring peo­ple togeth­er. The goal of Dust of Soul is to cre­ate a pos­i­tive rip­ple effect through their music and to encour­age peo­ple to achieve their dreams and over­come challenges.


Dust of Soul per­formed in more than 160 con­certs on three con­ti­nents – in India, Oman, Tunisia, Europe (Ger­many, France, Italy, Liecht­en­stein, Switzer­land) and Turkey. With a grow­ing com­mu­ni­ty on social media, 220,000 fol­low­ers have tak­en Dust of Soul to Tunisia in 2013, the Sul­tanate of Oman in the Mid­dle East in 2016 and India in 2019, where excit­ing music projects and fusions with oth­er artists have emerged.

Already in 2013, Dust of Soul reach tens of thou­sands of peo­ple in Tunisia with their music via Face­book and orga­nize con­certs on the beach and in the renowned “Acrop­oli­um” in Carthage. For the per­for­mances they join forces with the Tunisian cel­list Mohamed Amine Ben Smi­da from the nation­al sym­pho­ny orches­tra of Tunisia.

In 2015, Dust of Soul reached an impor­tant mile­stone with their self-ini­ti­at­ed “Peace Con­cert” in which they work togeth­er with oth­er Tunisian artists and thus sup­port­ed the “Peace Tunisia” cam­paign. The col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Tunisian cel­list result­ed in a live pro­duc­tion of the song BELIEVE with a music video, record­ed in the “Acrop­oli­um de Carthage” cathe­dral. It’s their most lis­tened song in Tunisia. That’s why the song BELIEVE cel­e­brates its pre­miere on the Tunisian radio sta­tions in front of an audi­ence of mil­lions. 

In 2016, four years after their found­ing, Dust of Soul received an hon­or from the Swiss Fed­er­al Pres­i­dent at the time, Johann N. Schnei­der-Ammann, for their “Inter­na­tion­al Cul­tur­al Exchange” ini­tia­tive and their musi­cal work.

Anoth­er career high­light fol­lows in 2018: a per­for­mance for the roy­al fam­i­ly of Oman with the Dust of Soul song COLOR OF OMAN, ded­i­cat­ed to Sul­tan Qaboos bin Said. The per­for­mance takes place on “Oman Nation­al Day”, the Sultan’s birth­day, in the Mus­cat Amphithe­ater accom­pa­nied by 20 Omani musicians.

In Novem­ber 2018, Dust of Soul received an award from the “Gir­i­ja Baqer Art Foun­da­tion” for their con­tri­bu­tion to the world of music because of this and for their com­mit­ment.

Anoth­er very suc­cess­ful fusion is their mix of opera/pop with Indi­an rap and beat­box­ing. The music video VICTORY with Hin­di rap­per Mc Sid­du and “The Dhar­avi Dream Project Mum­bai”, a music project in coop­er­a­tion with “Uni­ver­sal Music India” to keep chil­dren and young peo­ple off the streets and drug deals and to give sup­port through music sup­port. The music video is shot in the mid­dle of Mumbai’s largest slum, the Dhar­avi (same loca­tion as block­buster «Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire») and reach­es an audi­ence of half a million.

At the largest Euro­pean music com­pe­ti­tion “Tour Music Fest 2019”, Dust of Soul reached the top 10 in the Swiss nation­al final from 28,000 artists from all over Europe.

The Berklee Col­lege of Music in Boston com­ments on her per­for­mance: “Out­stand­ing artis­tic fash­ion style. Out­stand­ing stage pres­ence. Extreme­ly descrip­tive. Very interactive.”

Dust of Soul received the nom­i­na­tion for a crys­tal award in Novem­ber 2019.

In 2020 Dust of Soul release the sin­gle RAINBOW – a heart­break­ing bal­lad, as well as two oth­er Indi­an fusions: SMILE – in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Indi­an Bol­ly­wood actor Yash Choud­hary and MUSIC LOVE – with Indi­an rap­per Nox­ious D (of «Gul­ly Boy» fame) & Roland India’s Sup­port act – Indi­an singer-song­writer Ketan Mohite.
