Ljodahått back in Norway

“Ljodahått: norwegian climate.
Risk a dive into the strange atmosphere of Ljodahått.
A project totally off target,
Both crazy and patrimonial at the same time…”
Matthieu Conquet, Radio France

“Since I heard Ljodahått, it stays is my head for ever. Intriguing to hear how each song has its own character from chanson, folk, acoustic-metal-a-like to jazzy pop and eighties keyboard sound. From thatrical to soberness and from a dark edge to bright sunchine. All different but it all matches perfectly. Each song has its own atmosphere and not only the lyrics but also the instruments seem to tale a unique story”

Soirée Poésie d’ailleurs

Mercedi 18 mars 2015 à 20h Maison de la Poésie – Paris

Concert du projet norvégien

LJODAHÅTT – IS NOT EXACTLY A NORDIC POETIC FOLK ROCK BAND

« Le groupe Ljodahått « chanson magique » c’est avant tout une idée. Le comédien Magne Håvard Brekke, né en Norvège et formé au théâtre en RDA, en est l’inventeur. Il a rassemblé des artistes étonnants de plusieurs coins d’Europe. Un ensemble musical, des comédiens, chanteurs, musiciens, compositeurs, un style, un répertoire ce sont autant de mises en musique de poètes essentiels : Hamsun, Vesaas, Hauge, Ibsen, Nygard… La langue norvégienne très étrangère vous devient d’une rassurante étrangeté. Tous les climats, toutes les tonalités, les harmonies de Ljodahått s’éclairent et la langue maintenant vous pénètre avec ses mots simples, ses douleurs, son attention aux misères, sa mer, ses fjords et ses montagnes. Vous serez emporté(e). Envouté(e). Cet impossible à dénir, à classer, à assigner rend possible les surgissements insidieux du charme. La chanson, la poésie, les lenteurs et les faux tangos exercent leur sortilége. Vous entendez la langue. Vous apprenez la Norvège. Vous découvrez des êtres humains qui constituent Ljodahått. »
