Norwegian trio PELbO trample the lines between jazz and rock, drenching their instruments in effects and stirring a healthy dose of pop into the mix
Though vocalist Ine Kristine Hoem, tubist Kristoffer Lo and drummer Trond Bersu met as jazz conservatory students to form PELbO in 2006, all three would end up shedding those labels in order to bring the improvisatory spirit of their training to the world of electro-pop.
They’ve remained a consistent presence on the Norwegian jazz scene and, with the release of their second record, Days of Transcendence, in late 2011, PELbO seem to finally feel comfortable within compositions equally hooky and ethereal.
PELbO continue to embrace and shrink the gap between the brassy and the digital, as well as reaching for new audiences outside Norway. The trio looks to reconcile their very different past with an equally unpredictable future in this unique Festival performance.
This is a 12POINTS PLUS presentation.
