Nils Petter Molvær Khmer live

25th anniversary concert

Two anniversaries, one event. On the occasion of the 25th edition of the Enjoy Jazz Festival, one of the most important European music albums will be performed live. "Khmer" by Nils Petter Molvær, released 25 years ago, has changed the musical landscape beyond the borders of jazz. Molvaer's nu jazz combines electronic sounds with rhythmic patterns from trip-hop or drum'n'bass and places melodies in this brilliantly woven mesh, sometimes pulsating, sometimes velvety, that are more reminiscent of masterpieces from pop music. A mixture that has long had its place in music history and continues to have an effect today. Even in the motherland of jazz one could not escape this great artistic throw. The magazine "L.A. Weekly" chose "Khmer" at the time as the "Jazz Record of the Year 1998". With six top Norwegian musicians, including some from the original line-up, Nils Petter Molvær finally brings his legendary album back to the stage at the Pfalzbau.
