|Kauan started in February 2005 and up to this moment had changed their name and genre - they started as a folk-black band but now they have moved to the direction of folk-doom.
In September 2006 Lubov Mushnikova joined the band as a violin player. The band has worked with other people as well but none of them eventually fit the band's conception. During the recording of their first album some session members were invited to play cello and saxophone.
After the release of the first album, Lumikuuro (BadMoodMan Music, 2007), Alexander Borovich left the band. Kauan have recorded their second album Tietäjän Laulu, which was released by BadMoodMan Music in the late 2008.
In 2009 the band released their third album Aava Tuulen Maa (BadMoodMan Music / Firebox).
