Triller

Triller

Music can be very exciting, and with Triller there is no doubt. Their music is as unpredictable as spiced with humor and curiosity. There is a strong traditional base within the ensemble, where the members have dug into the music of their home provinces as well as other parts of Sweden, by learning in tradition or searching in the note book archives for old tunes waiting for new life. Swedish music is dance music, and played by Triller your foot will undoubtedly start tapping. But the members have broad experience from music of different genres, and don't be surprised when a Turkish maqam sneaks its way into a polska, or when Rumanian melodies and own compositions are woven together with delicate solos... or be surprised! Because that is exactly what you will be.

Members:
Pontus Estling

Pontus Estling
- Clarinet, base clarinet, harmonica and swedish bagpipe

Pontus´ way of handling his clarinet is quite unique in comparison with the traditionally played clarinet-music. Characteristic clarinet- and fiddle-tunes from the deepest forests of Sweden is delicately released through the black horn. But he has also blown new life into tunes played by long forgotten clarinettists throughout all over Sweden. Pontus has his own roots in the province of Västergötland and by diving into this tradition he received the honorable title as National master musician. But also Rock, jazz, east-European, oriental and classical music are elements in his improvisations.


Erik Ronström

Erik Ronström
- Guitar

Erik has his roots in the folkmusic from Gotland the largest island of Sweden. But of course, he is not only limited to tunes from Gotland. Folkmusic from all the provinces of Sweden, Eastern Europe, Ireland is played by an enormous strength and self-evident. Because of his attentiveness and flexibility he is popular as accompanist among many musicians, instrumentalists and singers in different musical styles.


Jens Linelll

Jens Linelll
- Tambourine och percussion

Jens is one of the most interesting percussionists from the Nordic countries. He is always looking for new sounds and approaches to further deepen the percussionists role in an ensemble and as a soloist. His delicate accompaniment and vivid interpretations brings out the best of every tune, and this makes him a highly desired musician. He has also worked as a musician with several theatres.


Sheshti

Sheshti Johansson
- Violin

Sheshti was introduced to traditional Swedish folkmusic in early ages and have since then had a close relationship to this music. She is one of the few who has a firm hand in the tradition of Närke (her home province), and was only at the age of 19 when she received the honourable title as National master musician. But Sheshti makes magic of tunes from the entire Sweden, and presents her repertory with a glow of energy, which makes her an appreciated solo fiddler, especially to dance.
