With a repertoire of medieval and Renaissance music, A La Via mainly play at medieval markets , historical festivals and banquets. The name “A La Via” is old Provencal and means “on the way” or “out of the way!”.
Like many other groups in medieval music, A La Via use bagpipes and drums , but they also use a large number of different historical musical instruments. A La Via mainly create their own arrangements based on historical music. In addition to her debut album A La Via! A la Via has numerous publications on CD compilations.
Malleus is a medieval rock project by the groups A La Via, Annwn and Die Streuner , in which medieval pieces are interpreted with both historical and modern instruments such as electric guitar, bass and keyboard. In 2002 a three -track maxi CD was released by Malleus , which is now out of print .
