There’s nothing standard about RÅ.
With the combination of saxophone, clarinet and violin, paired with a hunger for innovation and exploration, RÅ has created a sound that stands out from the crowd. Traditional Swedish fiddle music is playfully fused together with EDM-inspired bouncing basslines, heavy metal-influenced riffs, free improvisation and jazz harmonies. This makes for a take on Swedish folk music like you’ve never heard it before. The Swedish/Danish band are on a mission to challenge and diversify the way traditional Swedish folk is played. RÅ is trad maximized.
