Wind ensemble from Gothenburg – Motley messy sounds – Rough and rhythmic melodies – Lovely live improvisations
With the roots in Nordic folk music, Westan creates their very own sound on saxophones, clarinets and flutes. The ensemble consisting of several generations of wind players from Gothenburg plays modaly and rhythmically sophisticated music.
Westan uses the dynamics and sound possibilities of the wind instruments for both delicacy and energy. It is offered in music with roots in Western Sweden and Norway in a new costume. Through nocturnal polskas and herding calls from the mountain peaks, both the cuckoo and the wood nymph follow.
