FAUN combines medieval & ancient instruments with modern influences to create an enchanting and powerful atmosphere.
The band's performance incorporates many different instruments, including the Celtic harp, nyckelharpa, various lutes, the bagpipes, large Japanese taiko drums, cister, the violin, flutes and even Arabic instruments like dombra, rebab, riq, oud, darabukka and bendir, as well as the melodic vocal section going from solo folk-like and often ambient melodies to chant-like and always enchanting vocal performances with the two female and frontman Oliver s.tyr vocalists combining something truelly magical. Influences of Celtic folk and medieval music fusing with driving beats draws an ever fast growing crowd of followers.
