Nils Petter Molvaer

1960 -

Origin: Norway

Main instrument: Trumpet

Genres: Electro-jazz, Electronica, Jazz

Born on the small island of Sula, Norway, trumpeter Nils Peter Molvær bridges several musical genres, connecting ambient, house and electronica to jazz. After playing as a sideman in diverse jazz groups he released his avant-garde debut, Khmer, in 1998. The follow-up, Solid Ether, arrived two years later, presenting Molvær's creative concept that composing and producing are an ever-evolving process. In 2003, he won the prestigious Buddy, Norway's highest honour for a jazz musician, and went on to score compositions for theatre and film projects across Europe. In 2009, the visionary trumpeter released Hamada. Baboon Moon followed two years later.
