Internationally acclaimed Norwegian jazz pianist Tord Gustavsen joins forces with Afghan-German vocalist Simin Tander – a rising star on the European jazz and world music scenes – for his latest project Hymns and Visions. A work that saw its beginnings with the inclusion of the hauntingly powerful Eg veit i himmerik ei borg (A Castle in Heaven) on his latest quartet release Extended Circle, Tord lends his superior skills to interpretations and elaborations of ancient Norwegian hymns and new compositions of Sufi poetry. For the first time on stage, Tord uses subtle live electronics to add depth and new layers to the sensual minimalism of his work alongside Simin’s warm and vibrant vocal art.
