According to Encyclopedia Britannica, Mykorhiza is “an intimate association between the hyphae of Fungi and the roots of higher plants. The association is usually of mutual benefit (symbiotic): a delicate balance between host plant and symbiont results in enhanced nutritional support for each member.”
Mykorhiza consists of Swedish pianist August Björn, Spanish vocalist Alicia Lázar Arteaga, and Taiwanese pip player Fan-Qi Wu. They come from the singular combination of three different musical traditions.
They draw inspiration from tradition, going back to their roots to transform them into a ne sonic world of their own. Through improvisation, they create a breathing ecosystem, a interwoven surface of multiple layers. The result is a unique timbrical landscape, bold an delicate, brimming with melancholic beauty. Mikorhiza is storytelling, a language with no words; sounding poetry. An interconnected organism; the intentional subtlety of the piano,
the strong, decisive counterpoint of the pipa, and the raw expression of the voice that connects them.
