Sigurd Hole trio

Sigurd Hole trio features Jarle Vespestad (drums) and Håkon Aase (violin). Inspired by traditional music such as the Indian, Arabic and Norwegian folk music, the trio explores different elements from these old musical traditions, combining them with their own expressions as improvising musicians of today. Challenging the framework of existing musical genres, the result is a unique mix of eastern and western musical traditions - a sort of open ended chamber music described by listeners as a "beautiful, magical and otherworldly experience".
