Røyst

The quartet was established in Leeds in 2002. The music is mainly rooted in jazz/experimental jazz and styles of ethnic music of various origins. All of their repertoire is original compositions by the groups members, with the sole exception of the use of old folk melodies and rhymes incorporated into their own contemporary compositions. The group has a very strong focus on improvisation and using vocal techniques that might be unfamiliar to most ears. the group is quickly becoming established on the jazz and world music scenes with successful tours to the USA in 2004 and 2005, and Norway 2003, 2005 and 2006. Their very first album "Nordic Initiative" was released June 2005 as an independant release.
