Welcome to the band Karmina

The Karmína Ensemble was founded in Prague in 1993. The ensemble concentrates on the interpretation of old Czech folk songs and music of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods - both secular and sacred.

The wide range of different replicas of historical musical instruments that are used by the ensemble give the performance authenticity and richly coloured interesting sound.

The atmosphere at concerts is emphasised by folk or period costumes and it can be also accompanied by the historical dance group.

Members of the ensemble perform in different settings of 4 to 12 musicians.

The programme can be also composed according to the specific wishes of the organiser; the performance of string and wind quartet can be extended with the repertoire of Classicist and Romantic repertoire.
