Franui” is the name of a mountain pasture in Innervillgraten/Austria, a small East Tyrolean village located 1,402 meters above sea level where most of the Franui musicians grew up. The word is of Rhaeto-Romanic origin and refers to the proximity of Innervillgraten to the Ladin-speaking region in the Dolomite Alps.
The Musicbanda of the same name have been playing together in nearly the same line-up since 1993 and are frequently invited to perform at major festivals and venues.

In addition to their concerts Franui have also realized anumber of music theater productions over the years, e.g. “Fool of Love,” a compilation of Shakespeare sonnets realized in collaboration with the singer and pianist Karsten Riedel and the puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan (Burgtheater Wien), “Meine Bienen. Eine Schneise” (Salzburg Festival 2012, libretto: Händl Klaus). On the occasion of their twentieth anniversary the ensemble hosted a sensational concert in the original “Franui” mountain pasture, at 2,300 meters above sea level, and some 1,500 visitors embarked on a three-hour hike to reach the location.
Since May 2015 Franui are part of the annual festival “Gemischter Satz” hosted by Wiener
Konzerthaus, which presents new forms of interaction between music, art, literature and wine.

Franui’s albums are released with the label col legno and have won several prizes (German Record Critics’ Award, Ö1 Pasticcio Award, Toblacher Komponierhäuschen).
