Rodrigo Berne founded the band in 2010. The idea for Tray of Gift's name came from a man who lives in the mountains of a town near Tray of Gift one (Varginha, Brazil). In this town, covered by stones are many mystical stories, beautful waterfalls and a good place to consume mushrooms. That man, who lives away from the people of the town, would have met Rodrigo Berne and offered him a tray full of mushrooms (Zebu kind), Rodrigo asked him how he could give back the tray and the man said that was a gift. Medieval, Celtic, and Folk Music are the inspirations for the songs and the lyrical inspirations are the medieval legends and Irish stories but the band creates also its own tales and myths ; as Rodrigo Berne did for the famous dwarf Finganfor of the second album of Tuatha de Danann, and lots of other characters and magical places.
