If music is the language of the human soul, Streif’s songs are the joystick for feelings of warmth and comfort. Somehow, it has to be the long darkness, icy winters, and magnificent loneliness of the Norwegian countryside that makes such fullness of sound and enormous joy in experimentation flourish, something that doesn’t seem possible elsewhere in the world. Streif’s four-man ensemble constisting of Georg Reiss (clarinet, tárogáto, saxophone), Tom Karlsrud (accordeon, euphonium), Torbjǿrn Ǿkland (guitar, mandoline, trumpet), and Birger Mistereggen (percussion, marimba, drums), presents itself with an incredibly superb wealth of musical invention that really gets into your ears, and stays there.
