Viva Black feat. Gretli & Heidi
The wooden’s warm and softly singing timbre, together with the wining, cool and shiny sound of glass… It’s
gotta sound delightful!
When I for the first time heard the fantastic sisters Gretli & Heidi perform, I immediately envisioned a project putting them together with my trio Viva Black. Then in the fall of 2015 it began to take shape when Catharina Backman, Carin Blom, Peter Danemo and I started to write material for this ensemble, which
premiered in the old reactor Reaktorhallen R1 at the Royal Technical University in Stockholm. I am very excited that this music is now to be released on this album ”Mal Sirine”. And doesn’t it sound delightful - sounds never previously conceived will be assured when glass harp, bottles, bowls and plates resonate together with violin, the bass and drums. The sisters had just spent a week in the Swiss Alps at a yodelling retreat, so some yodelling is promised as well!
