Ola Asdahl Rokkones lives in Tromsø in the north of Norway, but regularly appears with bands and orchestras all over Europe. He is an independent artist, and one of few saxophonists working both within classical music, jazz and folk music.

Terje Baugerød works as organist in Ris Church in Oslo, in addition to an active career as a performer, producer and composer. He is an openminded, improvising musician and works in particular with classical music, pop, electronica and traditional music from different cultures.

Their artistic ambition of this project is to perform both new and old Christmas songs in their own, and for the audience perhaps unexpected arrangements, highlighting both improvisational elements, jazz and folk music elements. They want the audience to get a strong, and perhaps overwhelming, musical experience, taking advantage of the sound potential in the church room and the dynamic range of the combination of the organ and the tenor saxophone.

The vocal group Fauna was established in the autumn of 2009 at the Norwegian Academy of Music. The group consists of five skilful members who have their backgrounds from different musical traditions:

Silje Worquenesh Østby Kleiven
Camilla Marie Bjørk Andreassen
Beate Børli Løkken
Christina Thingvold
Gudrun Emilie Goffeng

Fauna works with folk songs outside of the conventional folk music tradition. This enables them to explore an intriguing sound, as two of the members are trained jazz singers, while the remaining three are practised in the classical tradition.

Fauna’s musical arrangements are written by the members of the group, and all compositions are tailored for their voices.

Through the music it becomes evident that it is the mixture of differences that makes up the unique and brave sound they present here.

With their debut album Solefall (Sunset), the Norwegian vocal ensemble Fauna leads the listener through a beautiful selection of Norwegian folk songs, all somehow thematically bound to the evening, night and morning. The result is a beguiling and engaging album with great textural variety, spanning from fragility to brutality.

Produced and recorded by Terje Baugerød, TerjeB Production

REVIEWS:

 Den Klassiske CD-bloggen (Trond Erikson)

""Solefall" is an album that breaks some new path in the vocal folk music´s many labyrinths. It requires a little courage to publish such an album - and then it's good to hear that they succeed."

REVIEWS:

Tor Hammerø - Tor de Jazz (NO)
Det anbefales absolutt å bruke tid sammen med musikken deres.

Albumcheck (DE)
Eine Live-Band die mit Jazz instrumentell begeistert. 10/10

Musik an sich (DE)
Jazzmine ist insofern eine sehr gute neue Band, die es verdient, mit offenen Ohren empfangen zu werden! 17/20

Der Hörspiegel (DE)
"
Ein Album, das gut ins Ohr geht und nicht nur Jazz-Fans gefallen dürfte.” 8/10

Weltmusik-Magasin (DE)
"Die Band spielt so ungeheuer entspannt und locker, dass sich der Spaß sofort auf den Hörer überträgt."

Musicscan (DE) 8/10

Hooked on music (DE)
"Diese Scheibe groovt, rockt, reißt mit, funkt, ist obercool und trotzdem gefühlsecht. Beide Daumen hoch für diese Leistung!”

Musikreviews (DE)
"Ein Album mit den langweiligsten, nichtssagenden Titelnamen hinter denen sich Musik verbirgt, deren abwechslungsreiche Aussagekraft schon nach dem ersten Hördurchgang verblüfft und dann, spätestens nach dem zweiten Durchlauf begeistert.”

Ragazzi (DE)
"Wider Erwarten besticht die Scheibe durch ihre absolut positive Grundstimmung - nix mit skandinavisch-sklavischer Melancholie und Düsternis. Vital Information und Steps Ahead fallen mir beim ersten Hören als Reminiszenzen ein, was sich bei den Folgehördurchgängen bestätigt, vielleicht ergänzt um Yellowjackets, Spyro Gyra und The Rippingtons (letztere ohne die Schmusekatze, dafür mit einigen ripping tones); wären Toto eine Fusion-Band, würden sie vermutlich ganz ähnlich klingen wie Jazzmine."

Halm, strå, bambus og sykkelvaier
(Stubble, straw, bamboo and bicycle brake wire)
by Anders Rønningen, with valuable contribution from many of his musical friends on Madagascar,
is probably the most exotic Christmas release this year.

——

"I have enjoyed myself making this album a few late nights at Christmas time in 2013 at Antsirabe, Madagascar, where I have been so fortunate to live and work for a while.

It can be challenging to produce Christmas spirit when poverty is leaning against the wall outside, begging for food. Perhaps this has lowered the level of ambition and my willingness to gloss polish the music. I do not think it matters. The Christmas message might be even clearer. My Christmas dogma - and my hope for this recording - is that the simple, spontaneous, down to earth and maybe a little rusty sound will impart a Christmas feeling that does not conceal the real story that happened on the fields of Bethlehem in all its unthinkability: There, in a poor and dusty city - perhaps it was a bit like in Antsirabe - Jesus was born and laid on stubble and straw.

The main instrument on this recording is "Valiha", which is a Malagasy instrument made of bamboo and bicycle brake wire.

I think it's a nice connection there, and therefore named this Cristmas Cd: ”Stubble, straw, bamboo and bicycle brake wire”. And with this, I wish you a great Christmas.

The product may contain traces of dust.»

Fulani is an ethnic group (about 20 million) who live in many countries in Sahel - the lower Sahara region of West Africa. They are traditionally nomads and herders. Today many are settled. The fulani culture also includes farmers, artisans, griots, and traders. About 1 million live in Mali. They are hospitable, proud and carriers of rich musical and other cultural traditions. Near the Sahara and the Niger bank they live their lives. Anyone who sits down and listens to the Fulani stories have much to learn. The recordings are made​ in Sevare in the Mopti region in Mali. The collaboration between singers and musicians from Norway and Mali, we want to contribute to the growing fulani church in Mali to use the music tradition in their worship. We hope that this cooperation will strengthen the ties between our two countries. Fulani voices are worth listening to. It was originally released on CD in 2009 (NO CHM 0901) and is now for the first time released digitally, licensed from NMS to Terje Baugerød´s label, TerjeB Production.
