Deloraine is a pagan fantasy folk band from the Czech Republic whose live performances are full of pagan dances, mysterious rituals, and endless energy. You will enjoy the powerful voices, and sound of many ethnic and exotic instruments and show in outstanding costumes.

In the songs, the band deals with themes from fantasy literature, the world of The Witcher, myths, and sagas from ancient Celtic, Slavic and Nordic pagan times.

Deloraine has released two albums, Vlaštovka (Swallow Bird) and Srdce z kamene (The Heart of Stone) both of which were named album of the week on the biggest Czech music portal musicserver.cz, and several singles including two music videos made for the popular game Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The single Sabat also won two awards by Celtcast for the best music video and the best song of 2023.

Deloraine performed at festivals like Wave Gotik Treffen (DE), Hornerfest (DE),
Cernunnos fest (FR), Echos et Merveilles (FR) Kilkim Zaibu (LT), or Trolls&Légendes (BE).

The band repeatedly appears at major Czech festivals such as Celtic Night, Lughnasad in Nasavrky, or various Witcher and fantasy festivals.

Deloraine has also performed with contemporary PaganFolk icons such as Faun, Eivør, Percival, Korpiklaani, Garmarna, Corvus Corax, Subway to Sally and many others.

You can hear the powerful voice and mysterious colors of flutes of the beautiful and wild Siberian woman Masha, the rich baritone of the giant singer Spars, the artillery of Derias' stringed instruments (bouzouki, guitar, quinterna, saz, oud and many others), the fierce violin and sweet voice of mysterious Turmawen, the rumbling of the bassist Kuba, the shamanic drums of Miloš and DaphydCrow ads earthy pagan tones with the deep resonance of his sliding didgeridoo.

Deloraine is currently playing a wide range of events, from open-air festivals and municipal celebrations to well-attended club events and metal gigs. Even there, they excel with their acoustic but cutting music. They'll impress in a short festival set and are just as happy to play a full-length gig because they're tireless on stage and music is their mission.
