A part of Summartónar
In the last couple of years GØ from Tórshavn have been putting their mark on the Faroese music scene. The group plays original music inspired by Jazz, Rock and Free Impro. Besides having played at the Winterjazz Festival in Tórshavn in 2015, ‘16 and ’17 GØ represented the future in Faroese jazz at the Tórshavnar Jazz Association’s 40th anniversary concert.
The music primarily written by Kristian Pauli Ellefsen and Ólavur Gaard is unlike anything currently on the Faroese music scene. Harmony and dissonance melts together while still maintaining recognisable and sometimes catchy melodies.
