GET TO KNOW THE ARTISTS
Mariam Wallentin has, for more than 15 years, composed and performed her experimental pop as one half of the duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums, and now solo as Mariam The Believer. You instantly recognise her vocal, that simultaneously possesses an unbelievable amount of strengthand fragile beauty.
Backxwash is a Rapper/Producer that was born in Lusaka, Zambia. The music she makes is cathartic, expressive and based on her lived experiences.
The Norwegian band Drongo have, with their fascination for wildlife, humoristic videos and riveting live performances, started to make a name for themselves in our neighbouring country. The groupdraws clear inspiration from Norwegian legends as Casio Kids and Todd Terje, but brings a bigger and more organic sound to the space disco/kraut rock/cosmic house (call it what you want) table.
A lot of people have asked for Camilla Sparksss to reappear at the 2024 edition of Northern Winter Beat. We are happy to both fulfill your wish and disappoint you. Camilla Sparksss aka. Barbara Lehnhoff is indeed returning. This time with post-punk-art-popduo, Peter Kernel, whom we also had the pleasure of presenting back in 2016. Their noisy sound, developed sense of melody, and hard-hitting liveshows have sent them around Europe and Canada with more than 800 shows at a diverse list of settings.
With the “well-known” combination of human beatboxing, banjo, and a cassette player, the Frenchduo Cantenac Dagar creates their rax mix of loop-based beats and drone repetitions. To trulyunderstand their music, you have to experience them live on stage. Music without a beginning, music without an end. Their concerts are described as a gigantic fire spreading across the old world.
