For 15 years, Sangre de Muérdago have been leading a path towards deep immersion into worlds of delicate and mysterious Galician folk music, all seasoned with doses of psychedelia, traditional dances, early music, celtic and classical influences, and becoming known for driving audiences into deep trance, transformation, intimacy and introspection. Living the old school musician's way, forged on stages of every colour all around the world on numerous international tours and renowned festivals such as Roadburn, Copenhagen World Music Fest, or Wave Gotik Treffen, Sangre de Muérdago have been carefully crafting a narrative of their own, in which magic becomes as real as our own flesh and campfire folk turns into chamber music. Sangre de Muérdago belong to a new generation of game changers that are re-shaping the realm of musical folklore. Showing deep respect and knowledge of their musical heritage and roots while at the same time creating new perspectives and ways to interprete it, giving birth to a new dawn of folk songs to be sung and remembered by generations to come, as far as there is music in this world...
