What happens when you put four of the most creative musicians from the norwegian jazz scene in lockdown?
In march 2020, when the corona pandemic forced Norway into lockdown, Flukten found their oasis. Flukten springs out of one thing – the will to create music.
Flukten consists of musicians from some of the most critically acclaimed jazz groups in Norway: Hanna Paulsberg Concept, Atomic, Moskus, GURLS, Wako, Espen Berg Trio,
Hullyboo, Skadedyr and Trondheim Jazz Orchestra.
After Flukten´s debut concert last year one music critic wrote: «if there is one band debut that really has left their mark in soul and heart, it is this».
With a musical reference library filled with the likes of John Scofield, Joe Lovano, Per «Texas» Johansson, Salif Keita and Paul Motian, they take detours through hip hop, soul and folk music from all over the world. Here, all spontaneous whims can be cultivated and explored. Flukten gives you dirty jazz that makes you move, and soft, fine tuned jazz that
makes you think.
This is music that celebrates life and embraces the unbelievable.
Flukten is also nominated in the Jazz category at the Norwegian Grammy Awards (Spellemannprisen) for the album "Velkommen håp" (2021)
