9 grader nord
9 degrees north of the equator lies the town of Jaffna, on the island of Sri Lanka, where half of the band descend from. With instruments such as bamboo flute and cajon, 9 grader nord wishes to bring the audience on a journey closer to their instincts.
9 grader nord serve a variety of genres, like baila, flamenco jazz and carnatic music. The band describes their music as energetic, mystical and rhythmic, and classifies it as ethnic prog. Their vision is to expand the listeners’ musical horizon by serving unfamiliar tunes. With their eccentric and distinct style in music they have amazed and satisfied both their audience and critics across Norway.
