Artist Biography Available in: FAVNI, originally named FAUNS, are a German progressive folk rock band that dates to the mid-nineties. The group's lineup has evolved over that time but remains centered around the trio of brothers Jan-Peer, Falk and Nils Hartmann, along with more recent members Jan Hecker-Stampehl and Kirsten Middeke.
The band's sound combines folk influences with rock-based arrangements as well as moody, sometimes melancholy instrumental passages and themes ranging from folktales to fantasy to nature. The group melds acoustic and electric instruments seamlessly, yielding a blend that is inspiring and strong, yet introspective at times. Fans of bands such as WILL-O-THE WISP and GJALLARHORN may find FAVNI to their liking.
