Ensemble Voyagers took us far out and back in time with their latest medieval folk single, Ductia

If Americana is the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the word folk, the open collective of folk purveyors and traditionalists, Ensemble Voyagers, with their medieval music creations, will show you there is plenty more to the genre.

Ensemble Voyagers, led by Daniele Montagner who started the ensemble in 2017, may be a complete antithesis to Heilung in terms of the atmospheres and sonic aesthetics, but the two truly traditional outfits achieve the same end goal of evoking history through melody.

Their latest single, Ductia, strips away the past few centuries to immerse you in a vibrant flute and trombone-driven production. The effortlessly jovial quintessential folk instrumental release is the kind of soundscape our European ancestors would use to mark an occasion for celebration or tavern revelry; European folk roots rarely get as deep as this; dig in.

Stream Ductia on YouTube and Spotify.
