16.04.2018 – 20:00 Miman
Miman is an improvising trio consisting of fiddler Hans Kjorstad, guitarist and clarinetist Andreas Røysum and bassist Egil Kalman; three of the most distinct and active young voices on the thriving Scandinavian improv scene. You might have heard them in collaboration with people like Tobias Delius, Tristan Honsinger, Axel Dörner, Frode Haltli, Håkon Thelin, Jasper Stadhouders, Henrik Nørstebø, Adrian Myhr, Frode Gjerstad, Christian Wallumrød and Rhys Chatham, or in a plentitude of bands covering the spectrum from folk music to noise. As a trio their sound is shaped by their diverse backgrounds and influences; Norwegian, English and Indian folk music blends seamlessly with sentiments aching to free jazz and contemporary music in an organic fashion that steers clear of the dogmatic.
The trio has toured all over Europe the last year, and in early 2018 they will both release their debut album and keep spreading their sound across the continent.
