Beautiful melodies and subtle coolness

Two years ago, the jazz duo Svaneborg Kardyb debuted with Knob. In the fall of 2020, they followed with the album Haven, and now the duo will perform at VinDanmark during the Aarhus Jazz Festival

For the past seven to eight years, the two Jutland natives Nikolaj Svanborg and Jonas Kardyb, who met each other at the academy in Aalborg, have played everything from pop to afrobeat. But it was jaz that made everything come together. And then things went fast.

Since they released their debut album Knob in the spring of 2019, they have been on the musical jazz map. The album became the album of the week on P8 Jazz, and a month after the release, the duo was awarded the Danish Music Award, where they won in the categories Best Composition and New Danish Jazz Name of the Year.

The same month, they landed a victory in JazzDanmark's nationwide competition for young musicians - Jazzkonkurrencen 2019. The jury's assessment was:

Svaneborg Kardyb delivers beautiful melodies, organic transitions with an electronic vibe, and subtle coolness. They bravely presented us with a type of minimalism that had a clear artistic command, fantastic and organic groove, and ensemble that was both elastic and dynamic.

This was followed by a wild year with massive attention and critically acclaimed concerts both at home and abroad.

In the autumn of 2020, they released their second album Haven, which is a tribute to nature and simplicity. It is the calm in the everyday noise, the slow in the bustle, and possibility in a world of far too many possibilities.
