‘FIKA’ is the new album by electric viola da gamba ensemble Elysian Fields.

Inspired by Scandinavia, 'FIKA' is rooted in the Swedish ancestry of Artistic Director Jenny Eriksson, and her love of northern European jazz and Swedish baroque music. This beautiful international project sings to the gathering of friends, food and conversation through the idiosyncratic viola de gamba. Produced by saxophonist Matt Keegan and featuring the stunning vocals and violin of Susie Bishop, ‘FIKA’ takes inspiration from the frozen landscapes of Scandinavia, drawing on traditional folk music and language.

Special Support: Jo Truman

Josephine Truman is an artist skirting the boundary of tradition and experimentation. Her cross-pollination of traditional and experimental performance styles caught the ear of legendary composer, theorist and artist John Cage, with whom she collaborated on ‘Song Books’. Fans of music that tests the edges of improvisation and experimentation will love Jo Truman’s performance.
