- In search of new ways to perform early music -

Ensemble Gamut!

is a fresh, experimental collective of early music and folk music specialists, who are constantly searching for new ways to perform early music. Extensive experience of medieval, renaissance and baroque music, Finnish folk music and improvisation as well as strong curiosity for new soundscapes create a unique combination of colors.

The group has given concerts in Finland and The Netherlands with great feedback and gave a showcase for REMA (European Early Music Network) members during their conference in Vantaa, 2018. All the musicians perform regularly around Europe with renown conductors and artists, have all premiered contemporary music, and are all performing with interdisciplinary productions around Europe.

Gamut! - the name comes from the medieval music theoretical concept (Guido of Arezzo), but it also means a color reproduction, a subset of colors. Kamut means ”friends” in finnish, and the word Kamu is also a shortening of when we talk about finnish folk music.

Our debut album will be published 2020 by Eclipse Music Finland, and we are now looking for an agent/booker/prmototers in Europe, with a special focus on Benelux and Germany.
