Fernab des Mainstreams streunen die Abisko Lights zwischen den musikalischen Welten und erzählen Geschichten von unterwegs, die seltsam fremd und vertraut zugleich klingen. Inspiriert von Nordlichtern und Wüstensonne, Großstadtlärm und unendlichen skandinavischen Weiten entsteht Musik, die der Phantasie Raum gibt; akustisch, eigensinnig und verspielt, Grüße aus dem Niemandsland zwischen Kammermusik, Jazz, Soundtrack und orientalischer Folklore.
„Die Nordlichter sind ein faszinierendes Schauspiel und ziehen jeden in seinen Bann, der sie einmal gesehen hat. Besonders hell und schön leuchten sie in der Winterzeit über einem kleinen Ort im schwedischen Lappland, 195 km nördlich des Polarkreises, namens Abisko.“
Inspired by Northern Lights and endless Scandinavian landscapes, the Abisko Lights present a mixture of acoustic, contemporary jazz, chamber music, pop and oriental folklore in a unique instrumentation.
Between clear melodic lines, delicate rhythm patterns and wide sound planes, the Berlin based quintet gives rise to a diverse, surprising and transparent bandsound.
„Abisko is a small village in Swedish Lapland, 195 km north of the polar circle, known for its clear skies. If you take a trip to Abisko in wintertime, you get a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights blazing across the Arctic sky.” (Abisko Turiststation)
