Just a quick a heads up: my new album “Tih” is OUT NOW via the UK-based F-ire label (www.f-ire.com/label).
Torbjörn Ömalm & Saajo explores the potentials of combining modern jazz with the folkmusic of Lapland/Torne valley on their new release “Tih”.
“Tih” is a concept album that explores a synthesis of modern jazz and the folkmusic of Lapland and the Tornevalley (finnish/saami-speaking area in Sweden) with a slight touch of indie. The music on the album vary between compositions made for trio-, duo- and solo situations. The album consists of 15 compositions that are dark, rootsy and atmospheric with a hopeful spark. It is music for both the glad and the sad. The word “Tih” means “stop and listen” in meänkieli, one of the minority languages of Lapland and the Tornevalley.
You can find it through various sources, including iTunes and Amazon. Spotify users will have to wait a while longer, though.
