Salt Song: Røyst Trio
I came across these voices who will be performing as part of Salt Song.
• Presenting world music and folk in a contemporary costume
• Creating unique moods with their original sound
Røyst vocal quartet was established in Leeds in England 2002 where the four original members met through music studies. In 2011, Røyst became a trio and performs original music written and arranged by the members of the group. Each member has their very own sound that together creates a unique vocal texture and a varied collection of compositions.
Their repertoire represents a versatile mix of influences and music styles:
– Rhythm and texture from world music.
– Passion and temperament from the traditional Norwegian folk music.
– Contemporary and traditional vocal jazz – with main emphasis on today’s multifunctional vocal techniques and timbres.
– Improvisation in a traditional manner, deriving from both jazz and folk music, as well as free improvisation.
– Various ethnic music and vocal styles from all over the world.
Røyst’s music and live performances have been characterized as offering a journey through beauty, humour, challenge and discovery of the voice anew.
