Hanna Paulsberg Concept + Magnus Broo
Last autumn Hanna Paulsberg Concept released the critically acclaimed album «Daughter of the Sun», where the Swedish trumpeter Magnus Broo contributes on the album. The album received attention in both Norwegian and international press. Both Hanna Paulsberg Concept and Magnus Broo with Atomic have previously played at the festival, but this is the first time they play together at Oslo Jazz Festival.
Marilyn Mazur’s Shamania
The percussionist and composer Marilyn Mazur is often referred to as the Danish queen of jazz, and is the only woman ever to be a part of Miles Davis’ band. She has gathered ten of the foremost female musicians from Scandinavia to the project Shamania. They played their first concert during Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2015 and have played several big festivals since. She is also bringing the Norwegian dancer Tine Aspaas, which makes this an exceptional concert both musically and visually.
General Post Office
Last year General Post Office played a Nordic Showcase-concert at Oslo Jazz Festival, and they impressed us so much that we invited them to play again during this year’s festival! They are inspired by the expressive free jazz-wave of the 60’s and classic blues heroes, and the result is an energic mixture of free jazz and blues. They are currently working on their debut album, and it’s going to be exciting to keep an eye on them in the future.
