Pahaska crosses over genres and makes a soundscape of naked heart stirring melodies with both forceful and fragile tone of air – filled woodwind balancing on a lonesome bass. Music for daydreamers.
The trio started playing music together in Malmö, Sweden in 2014 mixing traditional music with improvisation, elements of jazz, original compositions and experimenting with voicing for an unusual and unique instrumentation of oboe, english horn, tenor saxophone, electric bass and clarinet.
