Lyrical concert based on Christina Englund’s subtle, humorous and warm poems. Christina Englund (Voice), Henrik Knarborg Larsen (Percussion) and Niels-Ole Bo Johansen (Trombone) creates an intense sphere, where the poetry is supported, challenged and encircled by modern music. The trio has performed this lyrical concert several times, latest in Copenhagen at Sophienholm Poetry Festival.
Music and poetry in collaboration with famous Danish poets.
Percussion and poetry explore the abstact universe of rhythms - in combination the words and music create new meanings. The intense presence of the poets reading their poems makes the PercussionPoetry an exhilarating experience also for an international audience.
