This album is a musical journey inspired by ancient Maya gods, masterfully blending Nordic jazz with Latin rhythms. The thematic inspiration for this album stems from Gaute Storsve’s profound engagement with Mayan culture and archaeology, spanning over 25 years. His deep appreciation and understanding of this rich heritage has significantly shaped the band’s innovative musical direction, culminating in this vibrant new release.
Featuring Cuban percussionist Angel Terry Domech from the Buena Vista Social Club, Bebé K’awiil is enriched with authentic Latin rhythms, adding a vibrant dimension to the album. Oración a Ixchel showcases the stunning vocals of Patricia Morales, with lyrics penned by Guatemalan writer Christina Violeta Thrane Storsve. The cultural richness of the album is further enhanced by the exquisite ceramic artwork of Mayan artist Francisco Javier Iquic Garcia.
Gaute Storsve Band, which evolved from the Gaute Storsve Trio, has long been a significant presence in the Nordic jazz scene. The Trio’s first album, Attention: This Is Not a Toy, For Adult Collectors Only, laid the groundwork for the band’s distinctive fusion of Nordic jazz and Latin American music. Their next album El Gran Gotzilla (Apollon Records, 2022) has enjoyed regular airplay on the domestic radio channel NRK Jazz.
Line-up: Gaute Storsve, Petter Barg, Henning Carlsen, Ingrid Berg Mehus, Jørgen Mathisen & Angel Terry Domech.
