ylna is an Oslo-based contemporary music collective consisting of ten composers, interpreters and improvisers dedicated to creating and presenting adventurous music. 

In contrast to many other modern ensembles, ylna operates much like a band; from conception to performance, the composers and performers work closely at all stages of the process to realize the full potential of the music.


Drawing on our combined experience in classical, folk, jazz, and improvising music traditions as well as our interests in other art forms, ylna strives to present daring music in an immersive and stimulating setting.
