Det Norske Poesi & Satireorkester
This orchestra here is phenomenal. In other words, the entire Sulamite, with Dagfinn Nordbø at the forefront. Sharp, cheeky, tender, funny, musical. It is absolutely impossible not to feel comfortable in the same room.” (Kari Bremnes)
Norwegian Poetry & Satire Orchestra consists of:
Dagfinn Nordbø, lyrics and vocals. Over 30 years of experience in the humor industry. From the nineties copywriter for comedians; Rune Andersen, Shabana Rehman, Dennis Storhøi and others. Fixed for 20 years at NRK Hallo i Uken. Writes in VG and regularly in Dag og Tid.
Vigleik Storaas, piano. One of our finest jazz pianists, awarded with e.g. The Gammleng prize and two Spellemann prizes for own publications. He has a heavenly CV, a number of engagements with other musicians, as well as his own quintet. Also teaches at the jazz line, NTNU.
Gaute Storaas, bass. Graduated from Berklee College of Music. Was a bassman for hire with most of the best for a long time, now an award-winning film composer with very high productivity. "A man named Ove", for which Gaute had the music, was nominated for an Oscar.
"Dagfinn Nordbø is related to both Børretzen and Bjørneboe, but has created his very own form. This form is intelligent but folksy, unpredictable but immediately understandable. It is fabulous but precise, heartfelt but unsentimental, literary but from the heart and street smart. Hilarious and rambunctious one moment, beautiful and naked the next.” (Lene Kongsvik Johansen)
