Arctic Ice Music 20:20

EFG London Jazz Festival 2021

In order to protect the ice instruments at tonight’s performance, the temperature will be slightly cooler than usual in Hall One for the duration of this concert.


One of Europe’s most accomplished and innovative artists, Terje Isungset marks 20 years of ice music with an international project that brings together artists with a long tradition of living in arctic conditions.

Inuit, Sami and Siberian singers, alongside Terje’s pioneering ice instruments and Scandinavia’s best jazz musicians, celebrate ancient cultures’ longstanding respect for nature through traditional and contemporary music.

Line-up includes from Norway: Terje Isungset on ice instruments, Sami singer Sara Marielle Gaup Beaska, trumpeter Lyder Øverås Røed, singer Amalie Holt Kleive and video artist Anastasia Isachsen; Sweden’s Viktor Reuter on double bass; Inuit throat singers Akinisie Sivuarapik and Amaly Sallualuk plus Tuvan throat singer and member of acclaimed band Huun Huur Tu, Radik Tyulyush.

‘If you expect this stuff to be cold and unforgiving, you’d be wrong. It’s a chiming, intimate and utterly beautiful world of sound that entrances as much as it avoids any notion of ‘novelty’. Talk about chilled out.’ BBC Music
