Large Unit EthioBraz

Stor konsertkveld i vente i Folken når 21 mann/dame store Large Unit EthioBraz entrer scenen med sin sjangeroverskridende eksplosiv musikalsk fest! I 2013 startet den alltid hardtarbeidende og kreative stjernetrommisen Paal Nilssen-Love storbandensemblet Large Unit som har gjort imponerende store turneer verden over. Large Unit består av en lang rekke av nordens mest spennende musikere. Etter hvert har ensemblet blitt utvidet med musikalske venner og i 2019 ble platen «EthioBraz» sluppet hvor den etiopiske musikk- og dansegruppa Fendika medvirker sammen med brasilianske musikere og den nederlandske støyrockeren Terrie Ex. Paal Nilssen-Love is one of the hardest working and most prolific musicians there is. Known from bands like The Thing and Chicago Tentet as well as collaborations with musicians like Arto Lindsay, Otomo Yoshihide, Peter Brötzmann, Thurston Moore and many others. In 2013 he decided it was time to start his own big band ensemble, and Large Unit came to life. Consisting of mostly younger Scandinavian musicians, Large Unit manifests as an intense powerhouse force on stage, but also veers into more subtle and textural passages.


Å samle og turnere dette store bandet fra tre kontinenter er et kunststykke og det er med stor forventning og glede vi ser frem til en fri, energisk og groovy festkveld i Folken med dette helt unike ensemblet!

At Molde jazzfest 2018 Large Unit was extended to 21 persons, adding musicians from Brazil and from the Ethiopian dance/music ensemble Fendika, and also throwing Dutch guitarist Terrie Ex in the mix.
«Ethiobraz is a colorful cross-pollination, an exuberant tribute to musical openness, positive energy and life. Twenty-one artists from three continents, together account for an exciting, emotionally intense trip.» – Guy Peters
