Andreas Røysum Ensemble


Jan Granlie for salt penauts*

The modest Røysum is fully aware that he has been «so lucky that external circumstances have given me the opportunity to cultivate my gifts with fantastic friends». Trust him when he says that his music may make your livers brighter, even during our dire times.


“It finds them flitting between and fusing disparate genres including African and Indian music  as well as avant-garde, chamber music, experimental, folk, free jazz, gospel, improv, jazz and Nordic jazz  and draw inspiration from Albert Ayler, Don Cherry, Pharaoh Saunders and Sun Ra. These are the ingredients for an album of ambitious, imaginative, innovative and often powerful and thought-provoking music from the truly talented ten strong Andreas Røysum Ensemble.”


Tor Hammerø for Nettavisen

Som komponist har Røysum laga ei stuing eller gumbo som de kaller det i New Orleans som består av ingredienser fra afrikansk og asiatisk folkemusikk, moderne klassisk musikk med røtter i Messiaen, impro og garantert en hel del andre krydder også.
