Vox Vulgaris, “La Suite Meurtriere”

Performer: Vox Vulgaris

I cannot find their official web site, so some information from another site:

Vox Vulgaris is or was a Swedish group founded in the end of the 1990s, playing medieval music on instruments like bagpipes and percussion. Their musical dynamic is spanning from fast and loud dance tunes to much more subtle and improvisation-based, sometimes even minimalist, music.

They neither want to perform the authentic medieval melodies in a purely “academic” way, nor turning into medievalist rock’n’roll kitsch. Instead, they mean that the only authentic way to approach this early music is in an improvising way, allowing for the musicians’ own contemporary influences to shine through without taking over – like musicians have done in all times. Their only studio album was released in 2003 and named “The Shape of Medieval Music to Come” (a reference to both freejazz pioneer Ornette Coleman and the hardcore punk band Refused).

After several summers of intense touring and some legendary live shows, at the yearly medieval week on Gotland and similar places, Vox Vulgaris took a break after the summer of 2004. However, in early 2007 they made a grand comeback – in Sibiria, were they got invited to give some concerts for Novosibirsk Philharmonic Society together with their early music ensemble Insula Magica.

Since 2002, Vox Vulgaris has consisted of:
Jon Cullblad – Percussion
Max Persson – Bagpipes and percussion
Joel Lindefors – Cister
Rasmus Fleischer – Recorders, rauschpfeife
