It can hardly be greener! The Schrammel.Klang.Festival in Austrian Litschau is nuzzling into the landscape of the local lake Herrensee. The artists play their concerts into the Herrensee theatre which is open to all sides and on little natural stages along the paths around the lake. We are very happy that Johanna Juhola will be part of this nature and music merging event with the trio line-up and in an acoustic duo formation with Roope Aarnio!
The four singers will be part of this year's folkBaltica festival in and around Flensburg at the end of May. On May 23rd and 24th they will perform together with Nikolaj Busk from Dreamers' Circus. We are very excited to enjoy this very rare and exclusive combination of outstanding artists! However, this is not enough. Kraja will also be part of one of the festival's highlights: the All Star Band concert with soloists. The motto of the folkBaltica festival is "Sturm & Stille" this year - we are looking forward to the stormy and silent moments with Kraja!
We are very happy to announce that VOXID will be part of this year's Krämerbrückenfest in Erfurt. The festival lasts from 14th of June until 16th of June and attracts art-, culture- and music lovers not only from Erfurt and the surrounding region but from much further away. There will be different stages and places for performances within the city and we are very proud that VOXID will perform in front of Erfurt's monumental building, the dome. The concert is confirmed for June 15th and will be a great chance for the five singers to present their music to a big audience.
Triakel will be back with their new album on April 5th! It is titled ”Händelser i Norr” (Events in the North) and the Swedish trio tells stories from past times on it. 150 years ago, when there was no telephone, TV and internet, happenings could only be passed on by re-telling them. That could be happy events like marriages or visitations by famous personalities as well as sad or scary incidents like murder, disappearance and death. ”Händelser i Norr” tells those true stories and we are very excited to listen! Live dates for Germany are in progress.
Parallel to their live shows and preparations for the festival season the five musicians are also working in the studio on a new album. It will be a christmas record called "Cherubim" and appear on SONY Classical in autumn. Therefore, ALMA decided to search the archives for songs that allow an introverted but also festive instrumentation. Thus the end of the year will be the perfect moment for ALMA to sparkle with "Cherubim".
