Lt. Ivana Punkawitch
aka Barbara Hass guitar, vocs

In the 80s Barbara played in several punk and rock’n’ roll bands in her South German hometown of Freiburg. After moving to Hamburg, she started the all-girl pop band ‘DIE BRAUT HAUT INS AUGE’, where she and Peta first met a couple of years later. Hang Ten Wahine! After leaving DBHIA, Barbara dived into surf music and joined forces with ‘The Incredible Sinalco Bums’, a Hamburg based surf band that surprisingly managed to combine work with holidays, rocking the beaches of the Atlantic Coast and the slopes in Switzerland.

After that, she settled down to family life, started little side projects as a musical Too old to die young archaeologist and remained true to surf - the music and the sport. Today, she’s thrilled to be able to dig up the old guitar crap together with Mars Needs Women.
