Folk, world and Celtic music
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.
