The successful UK Ja Ja Ja club nights are now getting a German sibling: Ja Ja Ja Berlin will kick off on the 9th October in the stunning setting of FluxBau, where, on the second Thursday of each month, Berlin residents will be treated to the Nordics finest new talent
Ja Ja Ja have teamed up with media partners FluxFM and Nothing But Hope And Passion to present on the second Thursday of each month, hand-picked new talent from the Nordic countries at the FluxBau. The Ja Ja Ja Opening Night will introduce Noami Pilgrim, Blaue Blume and Norway’s very own Alfred Hall.
The duo Alfred Hall was founded in 2009 and is comprised of Hans Thomas Kiær and Bjørn Tveit. Their debut single ‘So Bright’ brought them domestic media attention as it was highlighted at national broadcaster NRK’s Urørt competition. Alfred Hall’s debut album ‘Wilderness’ saw its release in late 2013 to critical acclaim at home and abroad.
Ja Ja Ja has been bringing the best new music from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden to London for the last five years. Since the club night’s launch in 2009, more than 120 artists have travelled to the UK to perform at more than 35 Ja Ja Ja shows, including MØ, When Saints Go Machine, Susanne Sundfør, Niki and the Dove, Katzenjammer, Samaris, Reptile Youth, Olof Arnalds and Jaakko Eino Kalevi. For many, this has been their first ever London show and played an important role in accelerating their international carrier.
In 2013, the first Ja Ja Ja Festival took place at Camden’s iconic Roundhouse venue to take the club night concept to a bigger, world-renowned stage. Over 2 days, the festival presented 20 artists from throughout the region – from a headline set from experimental Danes Mew, to performances from rising artists like Rangleklods, NONONO and Postiljonen.
Ja Ja Ja is one of the longest running pan-nordic music collaborations and an official NOMEX project. NOMEX is run by Music Export Denmark, Music Finland, Iceland Music Export, Music Norway and Export Music Sweden and is set up to facilitate growth and development in the Nordic music industry.
