Stille før stormen
Flukt has gained a name for creativity in Norwegian folk music. Here, in their third CD, the musicians are still flying high in their striving for ultimate expression for the combo of fiddle, accordion and drums.
Flukt are virtuoso musicians with ability for childish, exploratory play. At the same time, they show deep respect for traditions and convince the listener that they have a secure hold on the characteristic qualities of their genre. The recording has enough blast for a car radio, while the music is appropriate for use at parties and concerts! Sturla Eide (fiddle and Hardanger fiddle), Øivind Farmen (accordion) and Håvard Sterten (percussion) combine the drone and ornamentation of folk fiddling with the accordion’s wide range of expression and the rhythmic drive of the drums. Flukt is an exceptional example of modern Norwegian group that plays both folk music and world music.
