about

Are you ready to be initiated by the four archetypes within?

With these songs I intentionally invoke my inner Warrior, Lover, King and Magician and I hope it will help you to do the same.
This album is all about growing into a mature human being by connecting with the power of the four archetypes, and consciously walking together with them on the adventure we call the wheel of life.

These compositions express my interpretation of the four archetypes which I connect to the four seasons within and without, and so they follow the cyclical nature of mann.

I challenge you to listen to what these archetypes have to tell you.

about

Sowulo Netherlands

Sowulo makes atmospheric dark folk, strongly rooted in our pagan past.

With immersive songs Sowulo celebrates our great pagan legacy and takes an inner journey.

The lyrics and the music, created with (early) medieval and contemporary instruments combined with cinematic sounds and voice, invoke archetypical wisdom and express the cyclical nature of Mann.
