Voices from near and far as a positive counterpoint to the global abuse of power
We are currently living a surreal everyday life where the power struggle between the world elite is becoming more and more grotesque and takes place in the form of offensive Twitter posts and campaigns supported by anonymous billionaires.
Shadow Government is trying to balance the negative influence of the world's power-hungry through musical missions to spread the message that our individual voices have a greater impact than we think.
The three musicians are all hyperactive in the North Jutland music scene. They have a great common urge to rock the genre boat and experiment with music styles ranging from South America to Armenia. Therefore, their music draws parallels to, among other things, Brazilian samba, Armenian folk music, and modern jazz from New York.
The concert is presented by Triscksters Inc and JAZZ9TUS in collaboration with Aarhus Piano Academy.
