MOPO

One of the most promising bands of the Finish jazz scene will be coming to play in Belgium and the Netherlands this october


Linda Fredriksson - saxophones, glockenspiel and jingles
Eero Tikkanen - doublebass and percussions

Eeti Nieminen - drums and percussion

The Finnish trio Mopo can accelerate from nought to the speed of light in a nanosecond. With their feet jammed down on the pedal, they embark on a hilarious musical joyride...

They use jazz, seventies punk and the Finnish countryside as their fuel. So as they describe it themselves, in a free mix of humor-melancholy-darkness-anarchy. Not to mention, full of nerve!

Last year Mopo was part of the official selection of the Glimps showcase festival in Gent. Also, Saxophone player Linda Fredriksson was a member of the European Saxophone Ensemble 2012 produced by MET-X, in collaboration with Aubergine Artist Management.

NORDMANN
Het jonge kwartet Nordmann breekt momenteel potten. In april wonnen ze de allereerste editie van de wedstrijd voor jong jazztalent naar aanleiding van ons festival STORM. De jury waardeerde vooral 'het onderscheidende geluid van deze band, waarbij kracht en power op een intelligente wijze afgewisseld werden met subtiliteit'. De muzikanten halen hun inspiratie uit jazz, maar ook uit rock en andere genres waarin improvisatie centraal staat.

Edmund Lauret (gitaar), Mattias De Craene (sax), Dries Geusens (bas), Elias Devoldere (drums)
