Nils Petter Molvaer

CLOSER art center

(31, vul. Nyzhnioyurkivska, Kyiv)

Nils Petter Molvaer is one of the best known representatives of Norwegian jazz school. He will present it to the Kyiv audience on the Thursday night. A fearless fan of music experiment, he has absorbed a huge variety of music but sticks to rhythm and emotions as the key components of his sound. Nils is inseparable with his trumpet that has that special sensational and melancholic timbre framed with electronic rhythm and beats. The combination keeps the audience engaged throughout the concert. That may be one of the reasons why many think of Nils’ concerts as sessions of music meditation.
