About Folkeando


A constant walk between north and south...

Folkeando's music is the product of our walking.
Musical touches describing places, roads, smells, nostalgies and joys, losses and reunions.
The ”there” faraway and the ”here” close, the ”here” faraway and the ”there” very close...
A quiet walking, slow but lively. A walking of searching and findings, of successes... and the others.
Folkeando is movement, is music, is life... It's our life here and there, yesterday and today, that in this paradox of our soul, is the same...
inseparable lives that are one... ours.
