"Folia" is the third CD collaboration of Andy Moor (guitar) and Yannis Kyriakides (computer) created in 2009 and performed in numerous festivals and concerts that year. It is an epic reworking of the famous tune from the 16th and 17th centuries called "La Folia". Fusing influences from this and South American folk music, they create a unique sound world of slowly evolving soundscapes, fluctuating beats, and rich oscillating harmonies.

Folia is based on a famous tune from the 16th and 17th century called La Folia of which there have been many versions composed. Its origin is probably Portugese and may have come from a trance-like dance in which the participants become possessed and as the name suggests have gone 'out of their minds'.
