Nils Berg Cinemascope

Nils Berg: wind instruments, projector, Christopher Cantillo: drums, Josef Kallerdahl: bass.
Nils Berg is on the frontline of Nordic jazz. Continuing the tradition of pioneering musicians such as Lars Gullin and Jan Garbarek, Nils Berg now presents his own version of jazz in an era of globalisation. Utilising YouTube, he borrows videos from all over the world and writes new music over these clips.

Alongside the Trio from Stockholm, on the display, there may be a class of koto students from Japan, a virtuoso balafon teacher from Ghana and youngsters from Brunei entertaining themselves in a canteen. The total creates a work of art which is well worth seeing.
