Aérokorda is a young folk band from Belgium that plays energetic, yet sometimes restrained folk music with Celtic and Slavic influences. Pavel Souvandjiev (violin), Adriaan Van Wonterghem (Guitars) and Davy Cautaerts (Tin Whistles and Octave Mandolin) formed the band in October 2016. Pavel is half Bulgarian and a classically trained violin player, this combination can be clearly heard in the way he plays. He has performed all over Europe with his other project, ‘Les Bottines Artistiques’, and is now ready for a new adventure with Aérokorda. Adriaan was also classically trained as a guitar player and created his own specific style of playing that often adds a romantic touch in Aérokorda’s music. Adriaan also plays with another Belgian folk band called Boreas.
Davy has spent several years specializing in Celtic music, which he is very passionate about, and is the session leader of a weekly traditional Irish session in Ghent’s Irish pub. He also plays whistle in a Folkmetalband called Ithilien.
The three young musicians proudly present their first album: ‘Hush the Wolves’!
