"Ur-pop" (ancient pop) from Anne Vada and Frode Fjellheim
They call it pop music, where both the lyrics and the music have old roots, produced into a modern soundscape. This is Anne's eighth album. She has always sought out talented partners such as Ronni Le Tekrø, Rolf Løvland, Iver Kleive and now Frode Fjellheim. Together they want to create something completely new! Something that will touch, capture and fill the church room with primordial power, pain, joy and beautiful moods!

Sharaka Ensemble New CD; release April 24 2015
Sharaka Ensemble is a unique collaboration between Norwegian and Palestinian musicians! The music is inspired by both Norwegian and Arabic tradition, but developed further into something unique and powerful. It is full of contrasts, but still gives a hint of a number of similarities, and a nerve that connects the two cultures in a spellbinding way!

Adresseavisen: «A masterpiece»
After the premiere at Voss in 2011, Avisa Hordaland wrote;
«The mix of Latin, Norse and Sami texts in combination with Frode Fjellheim's genre and cross-border world music blended so well together. So natural that you mostly began to wonder why not all masses through all time were written in this way. "

Hildegunn Øiseth's fellow musicians on this record fascinated her with their playing playing already in the nineties when she toured with them in the Bohuslän big band. Then they meet again for some hot days in Valencia where they exchange songs and a brand new joy of playing. The nuanced album has been characterized by both Iberian and Nordic tone color. It grows out of the meditative tone from the previous album, Stillness, whirls up rawer rhythms along the way, at the same time as it draws up the exciting path further.

Hun var ansatt som trompetist i nordens eneste profesjonelle storband; «Bohuslän Big Band» fra 1990 – 1999. Ettersom trangen til å utvikle sine egne prosjekter ble større, forlot hun BBB og bosatte seg og jobbet som freelance musiker i Sør-Afrika fra 1999 – 2001. Oppholdet i Afrika resulterte blant annet i to CD utgivelser med bandet Uhambo. Etter å ha utforsket musikk fra store deler av verden – inkludert prosjekter i Pakistan og Palestina endte hun opp med å gi ut sin første solo CD med fokus på ur-instrumentet bukkehorn.
