CROSSOVER: FARMERS MARKET & TROMSØ CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
This concert is guaranteed to produce fireworks! Since the band started up in 1991, the boys in Farmers Market have taken the world by storm with their unique hybrid of Balkan folk music, jazz and intense rhythmic interplay.
The Tromsø Chamber Orchestra has gained distinction with exclusive crossover productions, and this season’s programme features two real treats. The first of these features Farmers Market, a band with which many are no doubt familiar.
Making Balkan folk music accessible to and popular among the Norwegian audience is no easy task but, with their extroverted style of play and a large portion of humour and virtuosic play, for many years their music has hit home with audiences around the world.
So prepare yourself for uneven rhythms and a real Balkan treat when Farmers Market led by Stian Carstensen takes to the stage together with the Tromsø Chamber Orchestra.
