ELI STORBEKKEN & SIGURD HOL - SPELLSTENEN
Cat. no: HCD7364
Release Date: 6th November 2020
Eli Storbekken and Sigurd Hole’s new album combines jazz and folk music. Have you ever thought about what kind of music that can come out of a stone?
The title of the album, “Spellstenen” (“The Music Stone”), is taken from the name of the stone where Eli’s father Egil Storbekken used to spend many late summer nights with his flute. When he had time, he sat on this stone improvising and composing new melodies for flutes. At night the kids would fall to sleep to tender notes and beautiful melodies.
Eli Storbekken has been a central force in the Norwegian traditional song scene for many years. Together with one of Norway’s foremost jazz musicians, Sigurd Hole, they are creating a wonderful mixture of traditional song and jazz. With the steady musicians Frode Haltli and Terje Isungset accompanying, they perform a range of traditional songs from Eli’s home county Hedmark, where she has been collecting them for many year
