How come I haven't talked about that yet ?!? This has been one of the big events of this 2018 spring : I have started joining the band 'Madina das Spielweyb'. Basically Madina has now two nyckelharpa players to hire (the other one being my good friend Elena, which is also part of Skoga Obscura !), which gives both of us some less stress in our agendas.
It's a really nice project, with Madina's well-written songs and her equisite voice, the amazing Karen on harp, a good degree of percussions (here Christophe Zürcher on bodhrán) and a nyckelharpa. A full new repertoire for me, for which I had to rehearse quite a lot, but it's definitely worth it !
We played at MPS Bad Säckingen last april (realizing my dream of playing at an MPS) and... I will join Madina again for no less than the Greenfield Festival in Interlaken in june ! Yay !!
