Biography

When the Munich-based group Estampie, well-known in the medieval music-scene for their innovation and quality met with members of L'Ham de Foc from Valencia (Spain) with their typical mixture of Mediterranean, oriental and medieval music and it's side-product Amán Amán, focusing on Sephardic music, the idea for a common project was born. In Medieval times Al Andalus, the Iberian peninsula, was famous for tolerance, scholarship, wealth, trade and flourishing creative work. People of Muslim, Jewish and Christian believe lived together peacefully, mutually inspiring and influencing each other. These three decisive cultures of Medieval time harmoniously meet again in the music of the Al Andaluz Project, being represented with three extraordinary voices and a wide variety of Medieval and Mediterranean instruments.
