Sowulo is the work of multi-instrumentalist and composer Faber Horbach.

Captivated by the cyclical nature of existence and an animistic worldview, Faber is determined to express his spiritual path through his music.

With lyrics in Anglo-Saxon and music created with both historical and contemporary instruments, the creator and listener are challenged to go on an inner journey and to invoke archetypical wisdom from deep within.

Sowulo means ‘Sun’ in proto-germanic. Cycles can be found everywhere in Sowulo’s discography. The music follows our relationship with the Sun and tells the story of our inner and outer cycles of day and night, the four seasons, birth and death.”

The music of Sowulo is currently streamed over 20 million times on Spotify alone. The most popular track ‘Wulfwiga’ has reached over 4 million streams within 3 years.

Since 2013, Sowulo released four completely different concept albums:

· Alvenrad (2013): An instrumental ode to the pagan year feasts ·
· Sol (2016): Recomposed and reinvented acoustic version of the debut album ·
· Mann (2019): An expression of the four seasons within, through the four archetypes: King, Lover, Warrior and Magician ·
· Wurdiz (2022): Wurdiz, the proto-germanic word for destiny, is all about the dance between fate and free will ·
