Martina Linn on the hunt for traces of Rheto-Romanic at Chasa Parli
In 2022, the Grisons-based singer and composer Martina Linn will be going to the Münstertal valley in search of traces of Rheto-Romanic culture. Over the course of three months, she will be setting up a kind of musical laboratory at Chasa Parli with the aim of transporting old Rheto-Romanic folk songs and poetry into the world of contemporary music. In doing so, she will draw on her ancestral genre of indie-folk, while overhauling and expanding her songwriting by working with the different spaces and natural and unnatural effects. The resulting songs will be arranged and recorded on site with the aim of releasing them as a CD book, including illustrations and text documenting her search.
