Officially the Arda band was established on 7 August 2016 on the server Brandywine. Founded by members of Mista Tirme, Mirkwood Leaf, Rohirrims kinship's. Soon the musicians had taken the brave decision to take their own musical instruments and go to travel on the Landroval, where with great success and great joy was found two new members of the group - from the Glaw En Naur Aduial kinship.
Our band prefer to play all kinds of rock-music, from Soviet and Russian bands to world-famous bands.
That would be our first performance on the Weatherstock! We looking forward to it!
