[GO] Rarefolk´s newest album, on Spotify

 

 

 

Biography

RARE. - “Strange, uncommon”
FOLK.- Trad. “Popular” / Colloquial “People”

Rarefolk has distinguished itself as one of the most creative and unclassifiable instrumental music bands on the Spanish scene. Over 20 years and 5 edited albums back the group´s career, which has been characterized by the ability to reinvent itself. This demand for constant evolution and the search for its own defining language sets it apart from other musical projects.

 

They demonstrate a unique vision in which celtic music embraces rock and electronic avant-garde. The result is a deliciously elaborate sound charged with energy. The highly personal style that Rarefolk has created has been defined by specialized press as “Free Style Folk”.

Their participation in international festivals of such magnitude as Sai Festival (Ireland), Ollin Kan (Mexico), Montelago Celtic Festival (Italy), Ortigueira, Getxo Folk and Etnosur (Spain), and collaborations in their most recent record “GO” (2011) by Cathy Jordan (Dervish) and Dee Armstrong (Kila), as well as the incorporation of violinist Leslie Jordan to the band, position Rarefolk as one of the main exponents of New Music on an international level.
