Fräkmündt was the name of a mysterious mountain in the heart of Switzerland which is connected to uncountable sagas. It was re-named to Pilatus, after a legend, telling that the corpse of Pontius Pilatus who condemned Jesus was thrown into a lake on the eastern mountainside in order to taim his restless and furious spirit. Also, many sources speak about dragons living in caves inside the mountain, harming, but also helping people around it.

The Ur-Folk music project Fräkmündt tries to capture the spirit of these old legends and their manifestations in traditions around mount Pilatus and in other pristine areas around the alemannic parts of Switzerland.
