Nyala is a group consisting of Pau Li Liem (vocals/piano), Stef Joosten (electric bass) and Jorrit Romme (drums). As their name suggests (Nyala is Indonesian for "flame"), their music is an ever-changing and moving concept. It can smolder with lots of tension, and little dynamics, but it also has the potential to grow into fiery improvisations and compositions.

Influenced by this unpredictable quality of flame, they strive to find new sounds and explore new ways to interpret their own compositions. The starting point may be a fixed composition, pattern or text, but each time they begin to play, it evolves into a new impression of the piece. They are not tied to a genre or style but go into it with an open mind and creativity.

Our artistic director happened to hear the young band during his visit to MittelFest in Udine, Italy, and booked them right away.
