Adaro were arguably the most important band in the German Mittelalterrock (medieval rock) genre. The bands in this movement run the gamut from folk to metal, with most on the heavy end of the spectrum. Adaro were the proggiest of the bunch, simply more sophisticated, nuanced, and sensitive than the metal-oriented bands. Adaro feature male and female vocals singing German texts from the 13th-14th centuries or thereabouts. They augment the usual rock instrumentation (including electronics) with hurdy-gurdy (sometimes run through guitar effects), crumhorn, flute, recorders, bombard, and bagpipes. Ritchie Blackmore is a big fan, and fans of Blackmore’s Night should definitely give Adaro a listen.
