experimental folk song trio from Norway
Aurom combines three glorious voices and a love for their power of expression into a sound that is both brand new and altogether different.
The trio collects timeless songs from their tradition, and brings them into their own Aurom-universe. They compose new songs inspired by the old, and the many glorious vocal traditions in the world. Their music always has a touch of spontaneity and improvisation, because the best music is the one happening in the moment. Their arrangements are influenced by the ability of a voice to say so many things without a single word. Their texts are inspired by the flickers of ultimate happiness, the conflicts within, the complexities of being human. Now and then.
Aurom is Malin Alander, Ingebjørg Lognvik Reinholdt and Guro Utne Salvesen. The trio released their first album “Utan å dirre” (without trembling) on Nye Nor label on May 7th 2021.
Aurom recently completed a norwegian tour with new music composed by the trio in collaboration with composer Agnes Ida Pettersen, author agnes Ravatn, and as always, beautiful traditional music woven into it. The concert was named “Oh, weak mind”, and is inspired by traditional stories of being seduced or going searching for a way into the mountain, into another world.
This music is coming out in march 2024 - on Nye Nor label.
