“Akku is something so unique, this creative trio compeels the audience to let their hearts take an unexpected leap in the air. This group presents a musical "happening" that they are perhaps alone in”
AKKU started as a Norwegian trio in 1996. In 2010 the trio became a quintet as the Norwegian percussionist Knut Aalefjær and the polish saxophonist Grzech Piotrowski joined the group and developed the musical language in to AKKU5
The base of their music is the sounds of the northern polar part of the world, like the Inuit female throat singing, Norwegian folk songs and different Siberian traditions with overtone singing among others. The musicians have big variations in their musical background, making AKKU5 a quintet that creates a unique sphere of Nordic music.
