Širom

Artist

The broad guiding principle underpinning the music of Širom, whose members hail from the Slovenian regions of Prekmurje, Tolminsko and Kras, is the intertwining of diverse musical approaches and tools, histories of sound and unbridled musical imagination and craftsmanship. The trio’s form of expression is original, stylistically homogeneous, incorporating a wide array of both folk sounds and contemporary acoustic rock-style meditations. Širom’s music is contemplative but becomes sharper when the need (or desire) arises, veering more towards a band-like rather than an intimate, chamber-music sound, more street-like than urban in nature.
