transjoik

Transjoik creates music that is exciting, vital, and powerful! Song, throat joiking, a muezzin’s call to prayer, rap, or recitation? Transjoik consists of four musicians who use the human voice in a way you’ve never heard before. Derived from old joik recordings on wax cylinders, the group’s music establishes a mood that is at once modern and timeless and suggestive.

The vocal phrasing is reinforced by two drum sets, synth, electronic loops, and bass guitar. If one must speak in terms of musical categories, electronic, ambient, and trance are possible points of comparison.  Of course, the term “world music” may also be used. Whatever the genre, Transjoik has taken it a step beyond.
