them in contemporaneous arrangements, with weft of innovative timbres
and soundscapes inspired by the forest. Naturally, the group has
broaden its musicality and use elements from many traditions such as
Indian, Brazilian and Norwegian folk music.
Led by the brazilian musicians Eduardo Agni and Txai Fernando – both

— and the norwegian instrumentalist Sigmund Vatvedt, who for years
has been working diligently in the study of musical traditions of
ethnical culture. This trio of strong musical cohesion is enhanced by
the participation of special guests, master musicians from different
backgrounds, united with the common goal to alert the world to the
beauty of the nature and the value of diversity, through art.
