Introducing Tante Friedl! Welcome to our website!
TANTE FRIEDL is a duo folk music project based out of Bavaria and Berlin, Germany.
Magdalena Kriss and Dan Wall play music from all over the world.  They picked up tunes and songs from other musicians and friends from different countries, so it happens that they sing and play music from the balkans, Eastern and Central Europe, Scandinavia, the Isles and North America.  From the yodel to scat, ballads to protest songs, murder to love songs, Tante Friedl hopes to paint images and landscapes of far away lands, struggles and joys from different perspectives with care, grit and sweet harmony.

what we play

what we play

Magdalena grew up playing the classical flute and as her interest in the folk sound grew, she picked up the accordion to support her vocal work.  Dan mainly sings and plays the 5 string open back banjo in a strange kind of clawhammer style. From time to time he’ll also pull out the fiddle, a blues harp or a Tambourine.

Where did the name Tante Friedl come from? 

Where did the name Tante Friedl come from? 

Tante Friedl could be a larger than life MC or DJ rocking a gold chain, or a Bavarian cooking show on TV.  Fate would have it that reaching off of the matriarchal branches of their family tree, are two lovely Tante (aunt) Friedls’.  Their mother’s aunts.  Fate would also have it that they grew up not too far from each other straddling the German Bavarian and Austrian Salzburgerland border.  One, a stern yet warmhearted kindergarten teacher who refused to wear dark and dreary clothing, loved to tell a good story and swore that water was to blame for her weight. The other, an amazing artistwho is still painting her brilliant works on glass, carries an eternal curiosity and can bring lightness and joy into any room.  Both strong female figures in our lives whose playful, creative and nurturing energy greatly influences our style.

Folk Music? 

Folk Music? 

We Believe that our folk music is not only a dinosaur from the past, but a living and breathing reflection of modern times with a healthy dose of a historical cultural context that informs the present and future.  Our music excepts the wonder and the burden of how cultures influenced each other in melody, meter and rhyme over hundreds of years, often through cultural appropriation and oppression.  But this music has shown us that through celebrating each others cultures we can empower each other and at the same time strengthen our sense of identity in a heathy way.
