Torgeir Vassvik in concert at Tradition for Tomorrow

Torgeir Vassvik and the Global Fever Orchestra combine traditional music that has deep roots with a contemporary sensibility and technology. The ‘orchestra’ comprises just a few performers who can work together in a variety of combinations. They include Jan Lothe Eriksen on cello and live sound engineer Audun Strype who will be appearing with Torgeir at Tradition for Tomorrow.

Norwegian Sami vocalist, Torgeir Vassvik, who also plays acoustic guitar, frame drum and jaws harp, draws on traditional Sami joik, skillfully mixed with Siberian overtone singing techniques to produce powerful, hypnotic vocals. The ‘orchestra’ accompanies Torgeir’s vocals, cleverly using subtly shifting riffs, overtones, harmonics, layered drones and driving rhythms to create music of surprising intensity from apparently minimal ingredients.

Check out the You Tube recording of a live performance at Riksscenen, Oslo, where Torgeir is joined by the inventive cello playing of Jan Lothe Eriksen, Ole Henrik Moe on tenor violin and Icelandic fidla and the subtle mixing of Audun Strype.

Torgeir Vassvik is "among the most fascinating and intense of Sámi contemporary joikers." Review in fROOTS international folk music magazine.
