The Finnish artist now shows her skills in composing music for theatre. The play called TUHOUTUMATTOMAT Die Unverwüstlichen: Ein Spiel von Mode und Vergänglichkeit will be premiered on November, 3rd at the Ballhaus im Nordpark in Düsseldorf. The libretto has been written by Friederike Felbeck who also directs it. „Die Unverwüstlichen“ deals with questions as „How old can we get?“ or „How will we be aging in the future?“. It tells the story of a young fashion designer who joins forces with a gang of more than 100-year-old actors and singers. The play will be on stage again on November, 4th also at the Ballhaus and on November, 22nd in Duisburg.

Not only our artists are touring through Germany during the next months. We will also introduce ourselves on several occasions. First will be the Reeperbahn-Festival from September 19th until 22nd in Hamburg. Next stop is on October 15th and 16th in Bielefeld at the Inthega-Theatermarkt. Afterwards you can meet us at the most important international professional market of world music of every kind, WOMEX, from October 24th until 28th in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Last but not least we will be part of the Danish-Vibes--Showcase in Hamburg on November 22nd. We are looking forward to meet you!
No less than three of our bands will perform at Festival-Mediaval in September in the Bavarian city Selb! Euzen will play on September 7th, followed by Garmarna (on our picture) and Triakel on September 9th. It is the only chance for Triakel fans seeing their darlings in Germany this year! As this year is also Festival Mediaval’s 11th edition, the organizer have chosen the motto “Best-of-10-Years“ in order to invite the best bands and artists from the last decade. Since there will be no comparable get-together of musicians and fans of medieval music in the near future in Germany, we are very happy to have three of our artists performing different styles of Nordic Folk in Selb!
