The Archive Ravens are equally passionate about creating new music and preserving music from different cultures and time periods. We believe that the most immersive performances allow the audiences to travel with us to far-off places and times. Trobairitz is a collection of original pieces, each a separate vignette transporting the listener to somewhere new. Refusing to be restricted by genre, Trobairitz is highly exploratory: it contains a Troubadour ballad, a Japanese cradle song, a musical palindrome set in the style of sacred music, a 50's/60's girl group number, a Samba dance tune, a James Bond-esque cinematic jazz piece, and much more. However, the messages underpinning the music are united by common themes - including an emphasis on resilience, appreciation for the natural world, and a resolve to be mindful of the current moment. Trobairitz seeks to capture the essence of many disparate cultures, in attempts to unearth the threads of humanity shared between us all.
