The quintet Abekejser intertwines heavy hip-hop rhythms with the intricate harmonies and nuances of jazz at its best. The inspiration, from near and far, is encrypted together in a colourful machine jungle. Performing on everything from moog bass synth to classic electric guitars, Abekejser swings from tight beats to playful improvisation and on to groovy hooks. In autumn 2019, their first album, Floating Through the Universe, hit the scene to positive reviews and won the Jazznytprisen 2019 (New Jazz Award) for the release of the year. We can't wait to monkey on down with this fantastic band on the Open Air Stage with a troop of musicians who don't give a hoot for musical dogmas.
