O Corvus Corax
Corvus Corax is a band of the medieval scene from Germany, also known as Könige der Spielleute (The Kings of the minstrels). The East German band was founded in late 1989. Founding members are Castus and Venustus. Venustus builds most of the instruments such as bagpipes and shawms himself. Corvus corax is the scientific name for the common raven. This band name was chosen because the then young band had to leave their ravens in 1989 when they fled the GDR.
