Notes and Editorial Reviews

Firmly rooted in traditional folk music from Austria yet branching out in every possible musical direction, Alma make music that comes straight from the soul and goes directly to your heart, and maybe your legs.

In the liner notes René Freund writes:
“Alma are casual, but not careless. Cool, but not cold. They are smart, but not intellectual, emotional, but not sentimental, virtuoso musicians, certainly, but without the urge to constantly show off their skill. When they do, they do it with a twinkle in their eye. In their music, tradition, improvisation and innovation are merged into something new, something very much alive.”
