Arve Henriksen and Terje Isungset
as part of double bill with Naiomi Berrill and Simone Graziano
Arve Henriksen and Terje Isungset are two of the most prominent and significant representatives of Norwegian jazz musicians.
Trumpeter and composer Henriksen studied for five years in Trondheim, and since 1989 has been a freelance musician. The list of his collaborators is too long to list here, but names like Laurie Anderson, Joanna MacGregor, David Sylvian, Bill Frisell and The Christian Wallumrod Ensemble jump off the page. Last seen on these shores with Trio Mediaeval (which toured Ireland via Music Network), this visit with Terje Isungset will be a first for Irish audiences.
Terje Isungset is without doubt one of Europe's most accomplished and innovative percussionists. Rooted deeply in both jazz and Scandanavian music, he brings these genre way beyond their traditional boundaries to create music that is innovative, visual, energitic, and very likely different from any previously known musical concepts the listener may have encountered.
