For more than two decades IBRAHIM ELECTRIC has been one of the most popular European jazz groups. This unique band consisting of Niclas Knudsen (guitar), Jeppe Tuxen (hammond) and Stefan Pasborg (drums), can now celebrate 20 years of touring, recording and friendship – and the band is better than ever!
Their quirky – provocative – extroverted – original music sticks its fingers into just about every musical cookie jar… and sends cascades of pearls from the speakers. But their style is not for the pedantic. There are elements of old fashioned soul/jazz – AFRObeat – 60’s acid-power-beat – and of course the trio’s trademark: the fast, almost-punk passages in which the three musicians merge into one playful organism. Each of the band-members possess an extremely high level of musical ENERGY, and they have a mutual love for the pure energy in the music… This has made this unit extraordinary!
