SIDSEL ENDRESEN & JAN BANG
The long-standing musical relationship between Sidsel Endresen and Jan Bang has been one of evolution. Each beginning as individual chart-topping artists in various European countries in their own right, they have journeyed further from those roots into more daring, experimental and expressive territories.
The live interaction of Endresen’s unique voice and Bang’s singular mastery of live sampling creates a music that is predictable only in its ability to surprise, cajole, shock and seduce audiences in equal measure. The warmth they project makes them a rare thing: experimentalists that entertain.
