Legiana started spontaneously on the streets of Switzerland, France and the Netherlands, where the Legianas found each other in a love of world music with poetic narratives and a strong groove. The singers’ voices blend naturally into harmonics and the acoustic instrumentation of guitar, violin, cello and double bass gives the band an organic sound.
Their music incorporates traditional folk styles from all over the world, from sensual Latin rhythms to Balkan dance music to cowboy songs and sea shanties and their songs are sung in many different languages. Recently the band added a number of musicians to form Legiana Collective, which includes mandolin, diatonic accordion, bass ukulele and drums.
True to their origins on the street, Legiana’s live shows are always lively and theatrical, breathing a love of sharing their surprising music with the audience.
