FOLK, WORLD AND CELTIC MUSIC

ABOUT

Authentica celebrates the beauty of the songs and stories from past and present traditions through the sounds of folk, world and Celtic music. The five-piece band founded by singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer Martina Menichetti blends together lively tunes from the Celtic regions with folk songs from Luxembourg, exploring the country’s hidden treasure of legends and danceable tunes. With songs in English, Luxembourgish and many other languages, Authentica combines ancient and modern instruments, original compositions and traditional songs, mystical ambiences and an energetic stage presence. Martina has performed together with artists like Carlos Núñez and Dan Ar Braz, and was a member of the Luxembourgish folk-group Dullemajik.

PRESS REVIEWS

«... a promising newcomer on the national scene »

- Tageblatt Newspaper

«The Luxembourgish band Authentica with front woman Martina Menichetti was able to surprise and prove that even traditonal songs can definitely be given a Celtic shape. Some of Authentica's folk interpretations sounded like the original Jethro Tull sound, with Menichetti's flute sounding no less magistral than Ian Anderson's. With a voice close to Joan Baez, she makes Authentica a promising newcomer on the national scene.»
