 Norwegian Christmas Jazz with John Pål Inderberg Trio
JOHN PÅL INDERBERG TRIO

In Partnership with:

    

    

Meet the Norwegian Inderberg Trio and tune in to some jazzy Christmas music in the Scandinavian and North American tradition. This trio swings, sings and swaggers in a way that is incomparable. Paramount and unparalleled facet of the global Jazz diaspora—a true national treasure of Norway.

Baritone saxophonist John Pål Inderberg is a pinnacle among the most significant Jazz artists in Norway. He has played and recorded with some of the most respected Jazz iconoclasts in the world. Bassist Trygve Fiske has already made waves with his group Waldemar 4. His bass playing is learned and thoughtful, known for his deliberate yet never risk-averse. Håkon Mjåset Johansen has already established himself as one of the most significant membranophones of his generation; and performed with artists of the highest calibre in Europe and America.

The trio recently released the album "RADIO FROM THE SCREEN", embedded in the Jazz tradition, with its deep connection to Norwegian traditional music but encompasses from beyond.

St Lucia Choir
JOHN PÅL INDERBERG TRIO

In Partnership with:

    
 

Lucia − the bearer of light Alongside Midsummer, the Lucia celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with a clear reference to life in the peasant communities of old: darkness and light, cold and warmth. Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters. The Lucia tradition can be traced back both to St Lucia of Syracuse, a martyr who died in 304, and to the Swedish legend of Lucia as Adam’s first wife.
