Anja Garbarek single release
Anja Garbarek has today released the first singel, The Will to Walk, from our upcoming co-production The Road is Just a Surface. We can promise a thrilling and rich musical experience! Listen to it here!
Since her debut in 1992, Anja Garbarek has been provoking the musical tension between art and pop with her theatrical expression, unusually rich in detail. Her internationally acclaimed musical universe has been described as profoundly visual.
The collaboration with JSK evolved from a desire to put Garbarek’s iconic sound landscapes into a theatrical setting, with audiovisual images, choreography, and interaction between the performers. Together, they explore the experience of being trapped in an emotionally locked life situation and the longing for moving on from that place.
The Road is Just a Surface is commissioned by Bergen International Festival and will premiere at Den Nationale Scene in Bergen 24th May. The related album, including the singel The Will to Walk is produced by Anja Garbarek and Kåre Chr. Vestrheim, and released by Drabant Music. Cover photo by Åsmund Bø.
