Oddarrang


Oddarrang is a Finnish experimental jazz ensemble founded by drummer/composer Olavi Louhivuori. Through their music, Oddarrang delivers a musical experience that isn't bound to any specific genre or category. The band melts together influences from jazz, classical music, world music and post-modern rock. The group's music has been compared to the cool but moving expression of Icelanders such as Björk and Sigur Rós. The cinematographic soundscape of Oddarrang is an interesting mixture of different musical moods and traditions Read more on Last.fm
Oddarrang is a Finnish experimental jazz ensemble founded by drummer/composer Olavi Louhivuori. Through their music, Oddarrang delivers a musical experience that isn't bound to any specific genre or category. The band melts together influences from jazz, classical music, world music and post-modern rock. The group's music has been compared to the cool but moving expression of Icelanders such as Björk and Sigur Rós. The cinematographic soundscape of Oddarrang is an interesting mixture of different musical moods and traditions, which Louhivuori has been exploring as a drummer and a composer.

The unusual instrumentation of trombone, cello, guitar, acoustic bass and drums gives a unique blend to his compositions. Oddarrang's debut album was released in 2007 and won the award of the annual Finnish Emma-prize (the Finnish equivalent of the Grammies) for the best jazz album of the year 2007. Oddarrang has performed widely in Finland and abroad, of note, at the Paris Jazz Festival, Dublin 12 Points Festival, Bremen Jazzahead and the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2008 Oddarrang toured in Japan, where they will return also with their second album in December 2011. Read more on Last.fm.
