Kristin Asbjørnsen Ensemble
Kristin’s music has developed a haunting, distinct and dynamic ensemble sound – where guitars, basses and percussions are woven creatively into a warm, organic vibration.
The playful interaction between the musicians shows traces of soul and old African American gospel hymns, West African dance rhythms, Nordic contemporary jazz and contemplative church music.
The music affectionately reveals her enduring passion for African American spirituals as well as her own compositions.
Autumn 2016 Kristin will continue to perform in Europe with her extraordniary band – in different duo, trio and quartet formats, combining songs from her latest album with her earlier work “The night shines like the day” and “Wayfaring stranger”, as well as introducing new songs.
This is a great opportunity to experience the best of the best from this outstanding Norwegian singer!
