Full speed upwards!
JUNO is yet an example that the Jazz programme in Trondheim - wich is fourty years old this year – builds bridges between genres!
This outgoing and convincing quintette brings its engaging presence and captivating music all the way past the physical limts of the stage. Their music is a delightful mix of loopsided pop and delicious jazz, with a clear and dancable beat! We assosiatie the sound with Hanne Hukkelberg, Emilie Nicolas og Highasakite, a landscape of rythmically motivated and organical exchange, where complexity and catychy playfulness is sombined.
JUNO is heading upwards at full steam and after playing Nordic Showcase at Oslojazz last year, they will be at festivals such as Trondheim Calling, Bodø Jazz Open, Festspillene i Nord-Norge, Tromsø Jazzfestival and Vinterjazz in Århus. Their debut album was recorded in September last year and nor Norway is keenly awainting its release.
