Since their beginnings, Tenhi have devoted themselves to their own interpretation of folk-influenced, progressive music. Merely eight months after their latest studio album \"Maašet\", Tenhi present the piano-dominated \"Airut:Aamujen\", the next chapter in the band\'s own Airut saga.
Tenhi\'s Airut saga is based on the visions of Tyko Saarikko and Ilmari Issakainen and further explores the paths found within certain Tenhi songs. For example, the song Kielo, originally written for Tenhi\'s debut album \"Kauan\", was the source of inspiration for the first two chapters.
Tenhi\'s 2006 album \"Maašet\", featured multi-instrumentalists Ilmari Issakainen, Ilkka Salminen and Tyko Saarikko on percussion.
Neun Welten Neun Welten are devoted to a kind of nature-mystical folk music modelled on the melancholic, emotional melodies of Norse folklore. The group featuring Marten Winter (photo) on drums, have released \"Vergessene Pfade\".
As its title implies (\"Vergessene Pfade\" is German for \"Forgotten paths\"), Neun Welten\'s debut album portrays the way on paths that seemed forgotten for a long time, passing, with wandering gaze, the mighty mountains and their barren rocks, endless misty scopes and deep dark woods, where the paths lead to Midsummer where the way finds a new and hopeful beginning.
\"Legend And Lore\" compilation Tenhi and Neun Welten are also featured on \"Legend And Lore - Dark Folklore And European Myths\", a new compilation with recent tracks from some of the most exciting contemporary (neo-)folk musicians. Apart from established and successful acts such as Orplid, GaŽ Bolg, Of The Wand And The Moon, or Hekate, the cd also presents highly interesting newcomers such as Vŗli and Subaudition. All signs tell that they are going to be influential players in the genre\'s future developments.
\"Legend And Lore\" is presented in a lavishly designed, high-quality digipak but still available at low price (usually not more than Ä 5). This compilation offers a wonderful anthology of the Dark Folk genre for all those with an affinity for romanticism and nature mysticism.
