Songs about ancient magic, the power of nature and the dance of life and death. A mesmerising blend of music to dance and dream to with wild, energetic tunes alongside the ethereal and intimate, united by the binding theme of old myths and legends. This is Waldkauz.
On historic and modern instruments they combine their own contemporary compositions with influences from European folk music. Danceable rhythms intertwine with catchy melodies while harmonies for up to four voices enchant the audience.
In 2022 Waldkauz look back on a nine year experience as a touring and performing band, nationally and internationally. Among past events and festivals are Wacken Open Air, Festival Mediaval, Wave Gotik Treffen, Castlefest (NL) and Autumn Moon Festival. Furthermore the band also played many events at the Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum (MPS), the worlds largest traveling Medieval Fair.
In the spring of 2017 they released their sophomore album "Mythos" and made a huge leap forward. A refined and extensive production resulted in critical acclaim from press and listeners in Germany and other European countries. However their debut album 'Komm mit' is also dearly beloved by fans.
With over 10.000 records sold, over 23.000 monthly listeners on Spotify and a high touring frequency the band has many fans across the genres of medieval, pagan, fantasy and folk music.
