Angrusori features Nils Henrik Asheim and Iva Bittová and will be a fun-filled performance inviting listeners both old and new.
It is music that seeks to give renewed hope for our shared and interdependent humanity, through its ability to cross borders.
The Slovakian-Norwegian orchestra Angrusori released its debut-album Live at Tou on Hudson Records in May 2021. The album combined, and at times fuses, two distinctive spheres of musical culture: on the one hand, an ancient migratory song tradition, and on the other, contemporary, experimental improvisation.
Since 2016, a group of musicians from the Norway based Kitchen Orchestra and the Slovak Roma community have collaborated on the project Phuterdo Øre (open ear), now renamed as the band Angrusori (ring).
Romany songs of birth, death and black comedy. Using tango, flamenco, junkyard jazz and more, the pan-European group turn stories of migration, pain and persecution into something transcendent
