ruoho ruotsi


The ascendant sonic ferocity of Ruoho Ruotsi is on display again, showcasing sea-sick rhythms, throbbing, sawtooth basslines and xylophonic, melismatic ornamentations.

His trending Youtube videos have a simplicity and warmth that pulls ideas from Finnish Rekilaulu, Brazilian Samba-canção and Senegalese Djambadon, crafting rousing constellations of de-glazed rhythms, evocative of the atomised acousmatic embodiments of Bernard Parmegiani.
