The Magic Door, an album that is warm, kind and full of mystery

November has become a month of stories. First, we had the beautiful myths of the Sami people and North Germanic tribes put to music by the new duo Gói, then we dived even deeper into the Germanic myths with Sowulo’s storyteller album GRIMA. And now we have one last myth. For this myth, we go to Italie. To Rome. To a magical portal that has been placed there somewhere in the 16th century and has become an inspiration for a trio formed by Athuan Rebis, Giada Colagrande and Vicenzo Zitello. Together they formed The Magic Door and they made an album that is warm, friendly and full of mystery. Click on the link and dive with me into the world of the alchemists. Poetic, beautiful….and strange.

Sowulo releases Grima!
A storybook put to music

Alex isn’t that much of a writer. But sometimes, when he feels something deeply, the words just pour out of his fingers. That is exactly what happened when he listened to Fæcele, one of the two songs featured on the Grima, the newest album of Sowulo that is now available as a digipack:

‘Every time Fæcele passes on our music stream, I feel so proud that we are allowed to play this beautiful song as our Monthly Marker. The build-up, the emotion, the depth of the song. Hearing all this I am so looking forward to the release of the grima Digipack (and to a campfire somewhere deep in the Nordic woods, but that is another story). I just feel that Grima will give us a chance to (in our minds at least) return to the world before Corona, where we all felt safe.
This song touches the extacy I felt hearing Heilung for the first time and I cannot wait to see Sowulo perform this live!’



High praise indeed! Want to know more about Sowulo’s latest release in a review written by our Cliff, as always just follow the link: LINK
