LOFOTEN AT LA MOODSTORE
This duet band composed by Carles, a Catalan guy living in Vienna and Håvard, a Norwegian guy living in Barcelona for sure will surprise you.
Lofoten Cello Duo had its first appearance in their friends Alfredo’s living room in Barcelona. Among vermouth and home brewed beer the two cellists were inspired to continue this intimate format and work of the fusion of Scandinavian and Catalan folk music, without forgetting complex Balkan rhythms and beautiful Jewish melodies.
Distance is sometimes difficult to overcome but not for them, every time that Carles and Håvard hung out together in any of both cities they take off the rust from their repertoire and come up with some new ideas. They met in 2011 when Håvard, who was in Barcelona actually studying piano wrote a new composition for string quartet and needed musicians to record it, there is where Carles comes to the picture.
Carles moved to Vienna for love but that didn’t mean the end of the project, in fact, made it stronger and this is where they decided to record their first Album. What is clear is that their music is beautiful and touchy and they have a special talent.
The duet enjoy playing in small and intimate venues like the one this Wednesday at La Moodstore, an art, design and handicrafts gallery, in Born area. Relaxed and chilled plan for Wednesday to keep going with energy for the rest of the week!
