Ensemble Denada, Erlend Skomsvoll & Torun Eriksen
It’s time for a premiere of a new musical collaboration: Erlend Skomsvoll, one of the world’s best music arranger, the acclaimed vocalist Torun Eriksen and Ensemble Denada – an orchestra with some Norway’s best jazz soloists – together on the same stage during the Kongsberg Jazzfestival.
The theme of the concert, both in regards to the lyrics, the cast and the musical content, is progression. To get out of a locked position and into a new terrain. There are songs, there are great sounds. Some can certainly be called pop, otherwise definitely jazz. You’ll also find influences of hymns and traditional Norwegian folk music. What is certain is that there will be something new for Torun Eriksen, for Ensemble Denada and Buskeruds awared musician, Erlend Skomsvoll, who is also the musical leader – and something new for the audience!
