Lana trio is an experimental ensemble for the exploration of historic, non-ideomatic improvisation. Andreas, Henrik and Kjetil started playing together quickly after meeting at Sund Folk College in 2007, and extensively explored how musical parametres like density, speed, duration and volume could be stretched in order to create different possibilities for musical interplay. The trio have worked both with graphical notation and so called free improvisation, and plays music that draws inspiration from a wide variety of genres.
The members of Lana trio are already experienced musicians, who together or seperately has played with musicians like Jon Christensen, Tobias Delius, Raymond Strid, Nina de Heney, Michael Duch and Naoko Sakata. Active in bands like Mopti, Einer, Skadedyr, Paal Nilssen-Love large unit and As deafness increases, they have played concerts all around Europe and taken part in longer study trips to New york and Gambia.
