Nine degrees north of Equator lies the city of Jaffna, on the island of Sri Lanka, where sisters Mira and Dipha Thiruchelvam hail from. Their project 9 Grader Nord ('9 degrees north') started out by the sisters, who made up a flute duo, wanting some more manpower. They got a hold of percussionist Jakob Sisselson Hamre and bassist Jakob Sønnesyn, with whom they performed with for the first time in 2015.
The genre-transcending quartet presents a blend of baila, flamenco, Carnatic, Bollywood and jazz, with lyric in Tamil. They themselves like to label their music "ethnic progressive.
The concert is part of the 2018 Oslo Jazz Festival.
