BIOGRAPHY

“Bringing Alpine folk music into the new century.”- That’s the motto of the two Styrian musicians MARIE-THERES HÄRTEL and DEELINDE adopted a couple of years ago with the formation of  NETNAKISUM. It raised a few eyebrows. And not just in Austria. With KUSIMANTEN they have now joined together with the Ukrainian singer TAMARA LUKASHEVA.

Whereas Marie-Theres Härtel (Viola) and deeLinde (Cello) dedicated Netnakisum to the artistic renovation of Austrian folk music, together with the singer Tamara Lukasheva they have now made a significant change of direction.  With the the band they have considerably expanded their musical offerings. Sounds of typical folk music are now only apparent as trace elements in the music of the Austro-Ukrainian trio.
