Øyunn is rough, refreshing, open and well-defined. Sweet melodies and delicious grooves with exciting rhythmic and harmonic quirks. Øyunn is Siv Øyunn's musical alias and a creative play ground wherein well-defined themes are explored with spontaneity, playfulness and creativity. Tonality and rhythm follows a pattern, with references to alternative pop, nordic jazz and west-african music traditions.
