Be prepared for a musical vitamin boost! Mosambique is the band that gets people down from the bar stools and out onto the dance floor! Ivan Blomqvist (keys), the songwriter behind the successful band, Rohey, has put together some of the most promising young jazz musicians Norway has to offer; Lauritz Lyster Skeidsvoll (saxophone), Lyder Øvreås Røed (trumpet), Kristian B. Jacobsen (bass), Henrik Lødøen (drums).
With Jazzland Recordings, Musikkprofil booking and producer Erlend Mokkelbost (No.4, Aiming for Enrike, Atlantic, Montée, Jonas Alaska), the band will release their debut album in spring 2019.
The members of Mosambique are and have been active in bands like; Rohey Fieh, Megalodon Collective, Mikhael Paskalev, Slow is the new fast.
Together, Mosambique creates a hybrid of electronic dance music, afro-beat, hip-hop and funk. Jazzy horns, sassy synths and a pulsating rhythm section make it difficult to stand still! In a playful and unpretentious way, they convey new and fresh music, which shows that jazz has no trouble to be dancy. When the evening is over you’ll wonder what hit you!
