Research & Creative

Leyriath Assemblage

Leyriath Assemblage, found by Ricardo Alves Pereira gathers folkloric, historical, geographical and ancestral lore of Northwest Iberia and merges them to tales of music and magic. The tales can be heard in some The Wandering Bard concerts where the ensemble accompanies the legends with unique arrangements of medieval and renaissance music. The rest can be found and followed through “retold stories” and raw poetry.
