4 stars This album has a lot of energy, reminding me a lot of the French band Malicorne. Folque is folk more in the "world music" sense rather than the "acoustic guitar" sense if you know what I mean. It feels like it's from a very long time ago rather than the 20th century. If you're tired of the average folk album from the UK, listen to this. Note that I have no idea what the lyrics translate to.

The female singer has an interesting voice and style. She really can sing. The male vocalist is good as well, but what makes the album for me is the string instruments (violins?) and not so run-of-the-mill percussion. The strings are particularly good on the instrumental track "Springar".

4.5 stars if I could.
