Biography

TORREK fuses Irish and Icelandic folk elements under the umbrella of cinematic electronica. Its genesis was a recording session at the famed British Grove Studios where Flaithrí & Eoghan Neff (Riverdance, AfroCelt Sound System, Anxo Lorenzo Band) lent their acclaimed instrumental skills to celebrated film score, “The Eagle”, by Atli Örvarsson (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Babylon AD). The deep musical bond was cemented by the illustrious vocalist Hilda Örvarsdóttir, and a sibling pairing between both islands was formed. This stellar ensemble has been a slow-burning tour de force, evolving through recording sessions and concerts in LA, Cork, Madrid and Akureyri.
