Touch the Earth are a Tribal Folk Band that draw their inspiration from the natural world around them, their music has been described as: ‘A vibration of pure energy gathers one up, the flutes, violin, guitar, didge, drummers and singers are part of this surrealism – the essence is pure spirit.’ – The Holistic Channel

They are unique in their instruments and approach to performance, in addition to the more traditional Guitar, Fiddle and Voice they also use big native American style Pow Wow drums, Djembe, Didgeridoo’s, Native American style flutes and the 7ft Fujara: a Slovakian shepherds flute which creates otherworldly soundscapes. Their concerts are a mixture of songs, ballads and improvised pieces which frequently take the listeners imagination to the wild places of this land.
