Folk-metal.nl had a nice chat with Gianluca Tamburini and Hildr Valkyrie of Folkearth and Folkodia.
The whole project Folkearth started with an idea of Ruslanas (Metfolvik), their beloved band mate that lost his battle against cancer earlier this year. He could have better answered the questions about this subject, but since he’s not with us anymore, Gianluca and Hildr will try to do that. The idea was to unite musicians from all around the world, and in that way join the traditional music influences of each country. And the idea behind the project has never changed during the years, it just happened that different musicians have been involved in the project throughout the years, but all of them tried to do their very best in full respect of the basic idea. Ruslanas, being the leader and the creator of the project, was taking care of finding suitable musicians for this project. Some volunteered for the cause and he decided whether to let them in or not, some others joined at his request. Since he passed away, the line-up will probably remain the same. But they are always open to let new, good and willing musicians in, in the chance they are needed!
