The mystery of nature inspired people to create myths and opened their imagination. One of the oldest Roman deities was Faun – the god of fields, forests, pastures and animals, he was half human, half goat. This wild spirit of the forest and the medieval legacy inspired the unexpected and archaic direction of the German music group Faun, which has a strong connection with nature.
Faun creates a charming and expressive atmosphere by combining medieval music and ancient instruments with modern influences, recorded sound motifs, rhythms and synthesizers. Their performances are rich in a variety of instruments including Celtic harp, ryl, nykel harp, various lutes, bagpipes, archaic percussions and a lots of different drums, including great Japanese taiko, flutes, cymbals and many more. The melodic vocal section of the band is also very interesting, ranging from folk solo and ambient melodies to chanting, and the ever-charming vocal magic of the two singers and the band leader Oliver Sa Tyr. Celtic folk and medieval music brought together a large crowd of Faun followers.
The early works of the band were named pagan folk, darkwave and medieval music. In order to express their connection with nature Faun named one of their styles as pagan folk, which quickly became one of the favorites between their fans and performers themselves. The greatest feature of the band is the introduction of old instruments, and the focus always lays on the singing, which combines three layers of vocals. They are a great example of a German music style mittelalter that combines medieval folk and folk metal.
Faun songs are performed in a wide variety of languages: German (Normal and Medieval), Latin, Greek, Scandinavian, Old Icelandic, Hungarian, Finnish, Ladino. In addition to their own creations, the group focuses on well-known classical texts such as Carmina Burana, Cantigas de Santa Maria, Vitslav III's Jenaer Liederhandschrift, Prince of Rügen, Egils Saga, Poetic Edda, Heinrich von Morunge, The King Henry ballad, as well as Romance and contemporary authors such as John Keats, José Melchor Gomis, Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, Felicitas Kukuck, Baron Munhausen and others.
Faun was created in 2002, based in Munich, and they were able to perform at more than 900 festivals, concert halls and churches around the world. Today, Faun has released ten CDs and two DVDs. Their CD “Von den Elben” (2013) became platinum and “Luna” (2014) became the gold one.
