Music Award


Silver Arrow Award 2022 Silver Arrow Award 2022

At the beginning of 2022 Bernhard Mikuskovics again received a Silver Arrow Award in the USA for his work in the field of music of the North American indigenous peoples. This is the fourth time the artist has received this award after 2017, 2018 and 2019 being honored once again for outstanding contributions to the "Native American Music Industry".

For an Austrian musician who is neither an American citizen nor a member of an indigenous American community, this is a very special award, as it shows that global, intercultural engagement is positively perceived and internationally appreciated.

"It is a prize that you cannot ask for, that you cannot sign up for or submit anything to. You are awarded when you are present and noticed in the scene!"

Single & Video


The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond

"Laomainn", a new music-project by Austrian musician Bernhard Mikuskovics, launches with a digital single of "The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond", one of the most famous Scottish ballads.

"The whole song and interpretation has been given a makeover and has a lush acoustic feel to it, bringing a much needed freshness to the composition, the whistle and acoustic guitar combination has a nice Celtic resonance, and Laomainn’s vocals gift us something of an added texture to the song, one that should appeal to all of those who love this piece and wish to explore its natural historical values once more."

Weisheit der Wüste Weisheit der Wüste

Bernhard Mikuskovics contributes the soundtrack to "Wisdom of the Desert", the short film by the Austrian filmmaker Ludwig Valenta, which received a Cosmic Angel Short Film Audience Award at the 2020 Cosmic Cine Film Festival.

Silence and emptiness are two special qualities of the desert. There is no distraction here. Many mystics also report this. Through these special qualities of the desert one gains clarity - far from the everyday noise in our western world, one can perceive oneself in depth again here, feeling one's own essence.
