… are those dreams or are those prayers? (Tom Waits)
Donauwellenreiter, the band which formed around mastermind Thomas Castañeda and the Ladin singer and violinist Maria Craffonara, has already caused quite a stir through their uncompromising approach to music. Since 2017, the ensemble, which straddles the fence between folk and minimal music, has also appeared with Helmut Jasbar (acoustic and electric guitar). Lukas Lauermann, the cellist of the group, can also be heard as part of “The New Austrian Sound of Music”, in which he plays as a soloist at the mountain church of Tiffen.
