NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

Hvalfugl (DK)

Hvalfugl has already made a name for itself in the Danish jazz scene.

To describe the music of Hvalfugl requires more than a genre label. With their innovative interpretation of a musical genre deeply rooted in the Nordic musical tradition, the Danish trio takes Scandinavian folk and Nordic jazz beyond the boundaries of genres, creating beautiful melodies inspired by both Danish and Swedish folk traditions. It is a small musical universe of its own. A universe of instrumental music with lyrical melodies in atmospheric moods. Jeppe Lavsen plays the guitar with spherical sounds and effects, Anders Juel Bomholt is a bassist with a passion for harmonies and melodic passages and Jonathan Fjord Bredholt inspires with his mature, dynamic piano playing.

With melody as their center, they leave room for improvisation. The music is characterized by a great passion for melody playing and harmonies. Hvalfugl has succeeded in developing a very unique voice in their compositions.
