This croatian band will fascinate you! After some great performances at famous festivals (Dark Bombastic Event, Wave & Gotik Treffen e.g.) there is finally an album – full of beautiful ethnic and folkloristic compositions with a beautiful female voice.
“Loell Duinn, as such, was born in spring of 2003 as a result of various musical projects dating from 1995., taking many forms as the times were changing and events took its places. (As you well know the country was stroke down by political changes that ended up with 6 year lasting war) Founded by Alen Zarifović and Olja Frolo, Loell Duinn began to perform as a duo consisting in two vocals, classical and acoustic guitars. Soon enough we where hosting different musicians, excellent in their performance, but poor in their sensibility to understand music in its metaphysical form. Journey through time and new experiences continues with joining of the two new members, extraordinary person: Goran Brezac and Patrik Šćira with whom LoellDuinn becomes a complete and stable project. Until now we have composed some fusion of Arabic, Spanish, Balkan and local sounds using different languages, such as English, Croatian, Swedish, local dialects and invented languages. All the songs are composed as vocal-instrument parts that are tending to mellow, melancholic melodies connecting ethnic/folk elements with norms of classical music through historical vision of medieval, renaissance and baroque music in a modern performance. Loell Duinn performed sucessful on various festivals all over Europe, like the Dark Bombastic Evening in Romania or the Wave & Gotik Treffen in Germany.”
