Murmur Mori

Musical ensemble inspired by ancient sounds and Nature

The ensemble was born in 2015, from an idea by Mirko Volpe and Silvia Kuro, with the purpose of creating "new ancient music".

Taking inspiration from jester poetry of a popular nature, the project plunges its roots in the Middle Ages, when music was played for recreation, but was also a means of social criticism and had the fundamental role of knowledge propagator. Among the woods of the italian Alps grows Murmur Mori's folk music.
