Haivka - fROOTS

2016

English


"This is huge and absolutely glorious. The spirit of a Zappa big band, but with Ukrainian traditional music in Ireland. [Haivka]..is more than my thesaurus can come up with enough words to describe. It's wild, it's big, it's constantly changing...passion, loss and agony, intense, massively vivid, moving wonderfulness."

On the Premiere of Onur Turkmen’s Sailing to Byzantium - Jane Harrison

2016

English


"The interface between Turkish and European art and folk music proved to be complex, inventive, and surely weighted. I heard the noisy, percussive, mostly un-pitched sound world of avant garde European art music; the sober, curving tones of Turkish classical music; the poignant strains of Irish music"

Yurodny Haivka: hi-tech, avant-garde Balkan folk grooves - The Irish Times

2016

English


"Irish outliers Yurodny, led by saxophonist Nick Roth, may be fishing in the turbulent waters of the avant-garde, blending jazz, free improv, Balkan grooves and 20th-century classical harmony, but their nets also reach down to the slower, deeper undercurrents of traditional music."

Les Halles are alive to the Sound of Music - The Irish Times

2014

English


“The crowd was huge now, for one thing (the clickers on the door counted an astonishing 7,500 in during the course of the five-hour concert). And most were on their feet by that point, many dancing like dervishes to the main act, a jazz-folk-world-music ensemble called Yurodny. By the time the frenzy ended, a cloud of dust was rising from the college cloisters.”
