Singer Mari Kvien Brunvoll has already created a major ripple of excitement on the Norwegian jazz scene, widely regarded as a genuine original in the spirit of artists like Sidsel Endressen, with a voice that immediately captivates. She’s pursuing a singular path that also embraces projects for children and theatre, and her music is a personal expression that straddles jazz, electro pop and accoustic blues. She’s not entirely alone on stage, and makes use of loops and pedals, as well as zithers and thumb pianos to add detail to her intimate, soulful soundworld.
Chilean-German star minimalist techno producer/DJ Ricardo Villalobos couldn´t resist the siren like call of Mari Kvien Brunvoll and approached the Norwegian vocalist in 2013, offering to remix on of her songs. The result, ‘Everywhere you go’ – celestial voice amnesia resurrection mix’ and ‘amnesia rehabilitation dub’ gained considerable international attention in spring 2014.
