+++Concert Cancellations+++

Dear friends,

Due to the state precautionary measures and the ban on public events related to the corona virus, some of our concerts, such as the upcoming one on March 22nd, will also be canceled. We strive to find replacement dates promptly, which we will then communicate on our website. We cannot yet say with certainty which future concerts will be affected by these cancellations. We therefore ask everyone who has already purchased tickets for our events to contact the respective concert organizer.


We very much regret the cancellations, but are nevertheless in good faith that everything will soon go back to its usual path. And for those who get bored in quarantine, we recommend our latest CD "Ennui" on the subject of boredom.

Until very soon and with best regards,



Franui

New CD!


New CD!

Just in time for the annual Christmas boredom, we present, together with famous actor Peter Simonischek, our newest album: “Ennui”!

This is an album about boredom. It takes the award-winning Musicbanda Franui, accompanied by actor Peter Simonischek, away from their daily routine, back to the days of their childhood, and straight on to the graveyard. By ennui they don’t mean dull, though. Rather, it refers to a state of existential boredom, the moment when you are seized by black emptiness, when you realize the absurdity of life – or in whichever other ways this state has been described by philosophers. One of them, Kierkegaard, claimed that boredom could never be suspended by work but only by amusement.

Amusement, distraction, diversion, entertainment – or, in musical terms: divertimento. All there is left to say is: amuse yourselves!


You can buy “Ennui” here at our label col legno.
