Escape to another universe….
Remember this name: Heiða ! Heiða Björg! It sounds like something from an Icelandic saga. Heiða: a singer and clarinetist, a sensitive, powerful, gentle timbre with no holds barred, sparkling with a hoard of musical treasures accumulated along the way. Heiða Björg & the Kaos; this is music in motion, a constant dialogue between instruments and voice, wandering, creating, composing. Just like the volcanic, exotic letter ð, this group too will never be “just another band”.
The ð, is the taste of the North, of Iceland, the island overflowing with so much fire and lava that the surplus sheds onto the rest of the continent. In 2004, bursting with energy and Nordic beauty, Heiða washed up on the shores of Normandy, thence heading to Paris. Here she found herself at the crossroads of klezmer music, music of Eastern Europe and of weddings and celebrations. Tunes that mark the passing of time and of lifetimes; of joy, hope, sometimes sorrows and nostalgia. She formed her first band in 2006.
