Blending jazz, hip hop beats, improvisation and electronica, Anja Lauvdal and Heida Karine Johannesdottir are in constant flux, at Nefertiti reinforced by Danish saxophone wonder Signe Emmeluth. Expect the unexpected.

The Norwegian duo of Anja Lauvdal (keys, electronics) and Heida Karine Johannesdottir (tuba, electronics), previously working under the moniker Skrap, have during the past few years, among other things, made their mark as a backing band for eccentric indie pop goddess Jenny Hval.

In their music they are constantly searching for resistance within the eclectics in music. Inspired by jazz, classical, hip hop and club music, the duo ignores all genre conventions, making use of popular musical sounds and melodies, field recordings and small compositions, and tying it all together with improvisation.

In the summer of 2016, Skrap created Antropocen, a commissioned work for Moldejazz. The album received much acclaim for its eclectic compositions, but also for its subject matter of existentialism, the state of the world and our position within it. Antropocen was followed up by yet another surprising turn, as Anja and Heida moved toward electro-pop, hiphop beats and the theme of friendship with their 2017 summer single Marianna. After a year of touring and writing new music, Anja and Heida are back with yet a new commissioned work for the 2018 edition of Only Connect. FINITY will be released fall 2018.

For the concert at Nefertiti, Anja and Heida are joined by Danish saxophone wonder Signe Emmeluth. Oslo-based alto saxophone player Signe Emmeluth is only 25 years old but already established herself as a leading improviser and composer. She leads the quartet Konge with such heavy-weights as Swedish sax titan Mats Gustavsson.
