Tempus is a medieval rock band from the Czech Republic led by charismatic singer Linda Ravenna. The band is established in the Czech and European music scene since 2007.
Tempus consists of seven seasoned musicians who bring together years of experience from various musical projects. You may also notice an unconventional instrumental lineup because they combine modern musical instruments with medieval instruments. Their songs are not only catchy, but they contain imaginative arrangements too. Melodic lines of hurdy gurdies, shawms, violin and recorders beautifully blend with original melody lines of electric guitar supported by bass guitar and drums. Compositions highlight the contrast of the gentle voice of lead singer Linda Ravenna against intricate instrumental parts. It is not easy to classify the genre they play for their music is inspired by a lot of different elements. You can hear medieval melodies and rock riffs as well as melodies inspired by Celtic and World Music.

Mission of our organization
Hudební skupina Tempus, z. s. is a non-profit organization that focuses on interpretive activities, organizing cultural events, and lectures in the field of culture. Creating and spreading music inspired by the Middle Ages has been our passion and mission for over a decade. We have been successful in introducing the public to original historical melodies that are incorporated into contemporary music. We use both modern and historical musical instruments to interpret this music, which the public can experience not only at our concerts but also at the lectures we organize. In this regard, we also collaborate with other non-profit organizations. Since 2021, we have been organizing the Medieval Rock Night, a festival that takes place on the Brno club scene. Through this event, visitors can listen to selected artists and groups of medieval rock, folk, and metal, not only from the Czech Republic but also from abroad. Medieval Rock Night has always been very successful and well-received, which makes us very happy and motivated.
