cd cover Over Sundet
Masquerade (Go' Danish Folk Music)
cdRoots Code: go-0912

This Danish quartet finds inspirationin Nordic folk music but also leaves space for jazz, music from the Balkans and the Middle East and more. Over Sundet is composing and arranging subtle melodies for saxophone, clarinet, cello and percussion. Folk music, jazz, world, and classical music are weaved together, creating an airy and lyrical universe, where the dusty tune books have been replaced by brand new compositions. The music is centred around traditional folk styles but with a new and modern sound to it. A sound that is created partly by the uncommon instruments such as cello, bass clarinet, soprano saxophone and various exotic percussion instruments from all over the world and partly from inspiration from other genres as well as the musicians playful abilities to think out of the box.

This album take inspirations from the Nordic folk music but also leaves space for other exiting references such as jazz, music from the Balkans and the Middle East.

As something completely new - this album will also include a song with the clarinet player Siri Iversen on lead vocal and the rest of the group singing beautiful backing vocals.

Over Sundet has existed since 2006. The four musicians got together within the environment of the Academy of music and dramatic Arts - Southern Denmark where most of them have been studying.

In 2009 they released their debut album "Over Sundet"( GO0509 Go' Danish Folk Music). It received great reviews both in Denmark and abroad and while playing concerts in Denmark and Sweden the quartet has developed a great live performance.
