New-folk music ensemble from Denmark edges towards rock without ever crossing the line into pure pop. Heavy on the fiddles, with a generous supply of hurdy-gurdy, flutes, and viola, and backed up with a rock-solid rhythm section. INSTINKT made their debut performance at the Frederiksund Folk Festival in August 2000. The festival organisers counted on the group before it was even formed, but the 5 musicians rose to the challenge. After an explosive debut concert, INSTINKT developed into a unique band with a versatile and highly individual sound.
