Review from The Crack In The Cosmic Egg:
An odd duo, of Canadian Dolly Holmes and German Maik Hirschfeldt, Emtidi's roots are most obviously in traditional folk, and the music of Bob Dylan or Donovan, et al., yet by the time of their debut album Emtidi were no longer a conventional folk duo. Though very lyrical and totally acoustic, they had moved on and developed a style uniquely their own, a trippy folk-based music with an ethereal kind of cosmic edge. Being in Berlin at the time, they soon caught the attention of enthusiastic Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser who signed them up for his then "new German folk-music label" Pilz. The album SAAT was a truly progressive folk masterpiece, with the beautiful "English" vocals of Dolly Holmes and occasionally the contrastingly Teutonic voice of Maik Hirschfeldt, in a richly textured music featuring multi-guitars, keyboards and electronics, elevated cosmic progressive of a refined and most magical kind, beyond the realms of early Bröselmaschine or Hölderlin, towards Klaus Schulze even! Relocating to Munich and with an expanded line-up, including Rudi Haunreiter (later of Peter Frohmader's Nekropolis) and others, Emtidi continued with an expanding roster of material for several years, yet unfortunately never got to record any further albums.

Biography from Allmusic:
Two hippies, the Canadian Dolly Holmes and Maik Hirschfeldt from Germany, met in London in 1970. Together they went to Berlin to perform in the musical Hair. Emtidi was founded and the duo started to play the underground clubs of the city. Their repertoire consisted of traditional acoustic folk music. Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser, later owner of the labels Ohr and Kosmische Kuriere, heard them play and offered a record contract. The possibilities of multi-track recording enabled the duo to expand their musical style on Saat. The album is a sadly little-known masterpiece – a unique mix of folk, art rock, and psychedelic.
Unfortunately Dolly Holmes soon left the band and went back to Canada. Maik Hirschfeldt moved to a village near Munich and formed a new lineup with Rudi Haunreiter, Georg Karger, and Franz Müller. Although they worked on material for an unreleased third LP for some years, they never did a gig again and finally disbanded because they never found a suitable substitute for Dolly Holmes. Maik Hirschfeldt quit the music scene; the other musicians founded the jazz-rock band Niagara and are still active in various jazz bands. Rudi Haunreiter later played the drums on some albums of dark, ambient synthesist Peter Frohmader. Maik Hirschfeldt organizes rallies in Africa and only sometimes plays guitar just for fun.
