The scandinavian bass-player Joel Illerhag is leading his own choir with five female voices that sing songs that are influenced by folk, jazz and contemporary music genres. Their music is a search for an emotional and spiritual depth in the sound, exploring new paths of playing together.
Founded in autumn 2014 Illerhag/ Auzins duo is an alliance of two musically strong, like-minded individuals coming from different backgrounds. The music is about creating an atmospheric space where their stories can be unfolded.
