Salt Song: Røyst Trio


I came across these voices who will be performing as part of Salt Song.

Three voices

• 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.
