Jan Garbarek i Genève

Jan Garbarek Group & Trilok Gurtu – Jazz Classics

When talking about formative stylists in modern jazz, one thing should definitely not be missing: Jan Garbarek tackled the archaic, melancholy melodies of Nordic folklore with an ascetic aestheticism and thus quickly found an unmistakable musical language. Influenced at a young age by John Coltrane, he played in Keith Jarrett’s European quartet from 1974 to 1979, before he also absorbed new musical influences through numerous encounters with musicians from other cultures, be it in cooperation with Egberto Gismonti or Anouar Brahem or currently with the hot-blooded Rhythm juggler Trilok Gurtu. His anthemic recordings and performances with the Hilliard Ensemble, which are celebrated around the world, will not be forgotten.

Wardruna konsert i Geneve 15. november 2021

Wardruna European Tour November 2021

Wardruna is headlining a concert tour that will take place in exceptional venues across Europe to accompany the release of the new album “Kvitravn”. Unique date in Switzerland at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva on November 15, 2021.

Wardruna’s new album “Kvitravn” (White Raven) continues musically where the “Runaljod” trilogy stopped, but it marks a clear evolution in the band’s sound. The album presents a wide selection of traditional and historical instruments such as Kravik lyre, Trossingen lyre, taglharpa, sotharpa, langeleik, crwth, goat-horn, lur, bronze lur, flute and moraharpa. The disc also features a small group of eminent traditional singers under the direction of Kirsten Bråten Berg, one of the most important guardians of Norwegian traditional singing. Throughout the eleven songs, Kvitravn talks about Nordic witchcraft, animal spirits, shadows, nature and animism, wisdom and the meanings of certain myths, various Scandinavian spiritual concepts and the relationship between the wise man and the songs.
