4) AmmA is an experimental folk band from the Netherlands: Once upon a time there were a blonde, a brunette and a redhead who started making music together and discovered that they not only shared their love for folk music, but also that they could collaborate very well. This discovery gave so much enjoyment that by the end of 2008, a band was born.
AmmA is a fusion of the different approaches of pianist Emma, violinist Hanna and vocalist Sanne and melts together their love for folk music, old music, classical, experimental music, jazz and metal into a new entity. Together they make tradional music from all over Europe their own and perform it with much love and dedication to tell a story from a long (or not so long) time ago. They enjoy it even more when they can blow the dust off all but forgotten songs and forge them anew so the audience can listen, dance, cry, laugh and enjoy the best of times past and the musical skills and imagination of AmmA.
