The sound of Os: This organ of voices will touch your heart!

Ole Hamre is famous for his unique creative abilities in communating with people through music. He has produced numerous innovative projects and performances, and his music has made use of non-traditional instruments like ship’s whistles and the sounds of Bergen’s local population.

This time the target of Ole Hamre’s musical playfulness is the population of Os, one of Bergen’s neighbouring municipalities. Seeking out the sounds and images characteristic of the Os area and the unique traits of the people living here, Ole Hamre creates an Osophone - a ”voice organ”, which will be the main instrument in this spectacular live concert. Two of Norway’s finest musicians, trumpet player Arve Henriksen and keyboardist Ståle Storløkken join him on stage.

Ole Hamre has a versatile musical background, and collaborates regularly with a number of well-known Norwegian artists.
