Biography

With very few exceptions, BRANDAN’s repertoire consists of original compositions based on early medieval poetry from all over Europe. Thus, Brandan incorporates elements of medieval music, but never aiming to imitate ‘authentic’ (if there is any such thing) period musical practice. Quite on the contrary the ensemble deliberately introduces modern elements and instruments, combining folk with classical music, jazz improvisation with minimal music, roots with rock elements, cello with drumset, bouzouki with saxophone , … A Latin hymn sung by two voices may well fade into a saxophone improvisation, and Wotan, the venerable Germanic god, finds his ride through Nordic woods accompanied by a bluegrass fiddle.

The Crew:
Juliane Weinelt - lead vocals, flute
Juliane Rotter - cello
Jan Oelmann - violin, guitar, bouzouki, backing vocals
Jens Lübeck - saxophones, flute, clarinet, backing vocals
Kerstin Braun - drums, percussion, backing vocals
Reiner Bolik - double bass
