MONTHLY MARKER: VAEL
Sometimes we choose a Monthly Marker based on circumstance or timing. Sometimes it’s connected to a give away, or a festival. Sometimes we choose a song from a well established band, sometimes we get tipped by a friend. And sometimes, well, sometimes it just hits us!
Mittelalterlich Phantasie Spectaculum
was given a demo EP of a band called Vael. We had never heard of them, but when playing the disc it became clear right away that this was definately not only CeltCast material, but also a Monthly Marker waiting to happen!
The band consists of seven musicians, determined to connect the people of the world through good music! The name Vael comes from the Celtiberian God Vaélico, which is represented by a wolf. The EP is titled Mure, which is Japanese for Wolf-pack. The recurring theme of the wolf is chosen, as it is an animal with much lore, shared by almost all peoples over the world. Vael wants to use musical styles from all over the world and blend them in with their own traditional music, to create harmony between cultures.
For this Monthly Marker we chose the title track, Mure, which mixes Asian sounds with Celtiberian music, and attempts to form a bridge between these cultures. We at CeltCast hope to be able to play a part in that, by playing the song five to six times a day throughout June. Enjoy!
It was an amazing keltfest!
