Like the South-American tyranni bird that can both sing and scream, whistle and shriek, this flock of musicians can create wonderful soundscapes of noises and beauty. They don’t see a reason to choose between electronic or acoustic, synths or woodwinds. Within this contrast is harmony, and within disparity is unity.
Amsterdam-based Tyranni Flock consists of award-winning young musicians, playing fresh, lyrical and exciting new music. All five coming from different musical backgrounds, with the uncommon combination of a.o. EWI, vocoder and flutes, creating one fluid sound. Their debut EP was released in 2018 followed by numerous shows throughout the Netherlands. During this tour they reached the semi-finals of the Dutch Jazz Competition 2018. Their second EP is expected in fall 2019.
