Misty mountain landscapes, ancient forests, dolmens, rune stones, and primordial burial mounds: those are the images that come to mind while listening to Xenis Emputae Travelling Band.
Xenis Emputae Travelling Band, a one man project by Phil Legard, makes psychedelic ambient with a streak of folk. It's precisely these folk influences, which are represented by the use of flute, string instruments, pipes and pieces of song, that make the music so special. Xenis Emputae Travelling Band therefore gives off a warm feeling, and expresses an organic nature mysticism, rather than a cold, empty darkness, as is often the case with other (dark) ambient artists. Another special element is that all songs are linked to locations in the countryside. Phil often travels through Britain, composing the songs in various inspiring places.
