Stay tuned for music and videos!



Kobberstad Quartet/Trio

The quartet usually plays original music by Kobberstad, influenced by Norwegian traditional music, european and scandinavian jazz, and music from South-America. 

The compositions are melodic and with much room for improvisation and interaction, in a unique style full of colors and different rythms. Kobberstad plays the guitar in the “south-american way”, but with a more modern and improvisational approach. The formation usually consists of acoustic guitar, drums/perc, bass, and/or another solistic instrument. But Kobberstad often likes to invite solists and other participants also.
