Soundhouse: WAKO

About Soundhouse: WAKO

Coming from the vanguard of the New Wave of Nordic Jazz, Wako is one of the most dynamic and innovative groups on the contemporary scene.

Touring extensively since 2015, the band members have honed their stagecraft and performances, garnering a solid fan base and critical acclaim along the way.

Described as having "buoyancy and originality" by Terje Mosnes (Jazz i Norge, NO), as possessing "a very personal and distinctive sound" (Mike Collin, London Jazz News, UK), and as creating music that "would melt even the blackest heart" (Bird is the Worm, USA), Wako have brought their ever-evolving musicianship and creativity to impressive live renditions of their work across Europe.

Wako is also known for collaborative performances, including projects with Oslo Strings and with peerless Norwegian trumpeter, Arve Henriksen.

The scope of the band's musical reach is always finely attuned in equal measures to audience, environment and source material, meaning not only is each concert superlative, but also a unique experience. In short, Wako is one of the most impressive young live acts today, signalling a healthy future for jazz in Norway and beyond.
