About Tempus

Information for promoters

World music with a touch of the Middle Ages

Tempus

Tempus is a Czech band that weaves world music with rock elements, drawing inspiration from medieval melodies. 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.

ONE OF A KIND MUSIC EXPERIENCE

Tempus will also catch your eye by an impressive visual aspect of their performance wearing custom-made costumes on stage.

Tempus tours not only in Czech Republic but also abroad. You can catch them playing big town festivals and music festivals of various genres (Medieval, Celtic, Folk and even Metal festivals). Tempus was also thrilled to open for Blackmore’s Night on their 20th Anniversary Tour in 2017.
