Altenkirchen City Hall
Quengelstr. 7, 57610 Altenkirchen, Germany

It's an audacious bunch that's coming onto the stage. It's as if it had just stepped out of the enchanted twilight of endless Scandinavian forests. Black-dressed figures with Bowler Hat. Seven gentlemen in all, who reach for their instruments to musically bring Norwegian literature to life.

Ljodahått is the name of the collective around the Norwegian Magne Håvard Brekke. Musicians, actors and composers from half of Europe who have set old and contemporary Norwegian poems to music, from Edda and Henrik Ibsen to Tarjei Vesaas and Olav H. Hauge.

Ljodahått is characterised by an original and peculiar mixture of different musical styles. Nordic song forms meet folk, jazz and rock. The band name is well chosen. The Norwegian word Ljodahått stands for an old Nordic verse on the one hand, but can also be translated as "Troll Song" on the other. So the music of Ljodahått has something lyrically beautiful, sometimes even fairy-tale, only to fall into the rough at the next moment, to become wild and uncouth.

Ljodahått sings in Norwegian without exception. But even in front of an international audience it doesn't matter after only a few songs. Short moderations and projections thrown to the back wall in the respective national language help to understand the lyrics. Above all, however, it is the music that plunges the listeners into the stories and poetry of Norway.
