The Charmin' Elf Bio: On Fall 1999 some musicians and friends decided to gather... They had been friends for years but as musicians they had walked different paths till that moment. What joined them was the same love for the ancient melodies and also the need to give birth to an experience that had to be, in first place, a "free zone" for their restless creativity.
Our starting point was the so called Celtic music (Irish, Scottish, Breton folk music, etc.). It was not the choice of a "genre" of music, but the natural approaching to a tradition steeped in that "modes" particularly dear to us, as they magically stimolate the search of a lost sound, dwelling in the recesses of our souls; a resonance that can't be described by words and whose origin can't be set in time and space.
Besides Celtic music, we also hear "the call" of the music and instruments coming from other traditions - including ours from Puglia, of course. But what prevails over everything (as mentioned before) is the creative necessity which, drawing upon the different experiences and personalities living together in the group, leads us soon to the composition of original music and lyrics, as well as a completely personal interpretation of the traditional music.
