Musically, the strong opera voice channels the awe-inspiring nature of ” WILD and FREE ” and it sounds like a warrior’s poetic hymn. For this concept album, ViVA Trio created a fantastic scenario inspired by Russian and Danish folklore.
We caught up with ViVA Trio to find out more …
So what’s new with the ViVA Trio? What’s on your mind?
As we speak right now, we are in Pennsylvania in the United States for our Nothing Else Matters show. The next set of shows we’re booked for are our full orchestral Christmas shows in California and Boston as well as production on our next album which is slated for release in 2022.
Tell us all about your new single ‘WILD and FREE’?
WILD and Free is a flagship track from our upcoming album WINTER LEGENDS. It’s a departure from the music we’ve played before, but we love it! We collaborated with super talented producer and writer Ryan Louder from the UK on this song, we love what he brought to the table. We love the electronic and ethereal vibe it gives off.
When did you start writing music?
We have been writing together for a few years. On our first album we featured 2 originals and we had the amazing chance to play them live with a full orchestra all over the world! We are delighted that this next album contains all of the original music.
Really liked the video. Share with us the concept behind it.
Our upcoming album WINTER LEGENDS is a concept album that tells the story of a fusion of Danish folk character Frozen and Snow Maiden from Russian folklore; so this song is part of the story and helps introduce the characters. As for the video, which was edited and created by our ViVA Trio member, Katya Tchoubar, it aimed to bring the winter atmosphere, which is at the heart of the album’s story and you will see that Anna (The Snow Maiden) and Katya (Frozen) are still visible in the ice and snow. While the character of Erin (an explorer) is always represented by the mountains or the sea. Animals were an important element in bringing the fantasy to life and representing the personality of each character.
Who are your musical icons?
We each have our personal favorites, but all agree that our compatriot Canadian singer Celine Dion tops the list. We also love Sting, Adele, Sia and have our own favorites from all genres, from opera to pop.
What is the first album you bought?
Katya: Abba’s Greatest Hits
Anna: Madonna’s true blue
Erin: TLC is crazy, sexy, cool
Which artists are you listening to at the moment?
Erin: Michael BublÃ©
How would you describe your personal style?
What does the rest of 2021 have in store for you?
We have several performances in December, including an orchestral show for the New Year, and we have a lot more writing and recording to do, but we are looking forward to 2022 !!
