Sly & Robbie Meet Nils Petter Molvaer at 56. Ljubljana Jazz Festival at Križanke
Sly Dunbar, drums; Robbie Shakespeare, bass; Nils Petter Molvaer, trumpet; Eivind Aarset, guitars; Vladislav Delay, live sampling
The world's finest rhythm section joins forces with the seminal Norwegian trumpet player, Nils Petter Molvær. We are excited to present a unique collaboration of Jamaica meets Scandinavia: Sly & Robbie meet Nils Petter Molvaer.
Jamaica’s multi Grammy Award winners and the heartbeat of the island have worked with reggae artists (Black Uhuru, Peter Tosh) and some of the leading pop and rock musicians, including The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Grace Jones, Sting and Santana. They will perform onstage with electro-jazz pioneer and trumpet virtuoso Nils Petter Molvær for some unique shows in 2015 with a set of new material (organic blend of electronic / dub / jazz / world), composed especially for this tour.
In this mesmerising tapestry of sound they will be joined by Norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset and Norwegian electronica whiz-kid, Jan Bang, responsible for live sampling.
