A creative mix of curious, sparkling melodies, colourful harmonies - heavy, sweating rhythms - and inspiration from various musical styles is how they define new Danish folk music.
Tumult consists of four experienced musicians from Odense with each an individual musical background and experience; a hardcore folk-fiddler & singer, a popular rock guitarist, a hardcore retro bass player and a groovy rock drummer. It is the meeting of musicians with each their musical culture and background that gives rise to new possibilities and adventures. Prejudices are being reduced and the limits for what you can do with the music become fluid.
Most of the group's repertoire are new compositions, but it also includes traditional material: - songs, ballads and tunes from Denmark, which are treated affectionately in new interesting arrangements. Tumult started spreading in Odense in the autumn of 1999
NOW the release of their debut-cd.
