BioFattigfolket is a Swedish/ Norwegian quartet that gathered in Copenhagen around year 2000. During the last 10 years Fattigfolket has been touring Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France, Czech Republic and Germany, playing at some of the major jazz festivals, jazz clubs and radio shows. .. .. The third album from Fattigfolket called "Park" will be released in 2011 at the german label Ozella Music. As musicians we are visiting many different countries and cities, and we spend a lot of time on traveling by plane, train, bus or car, to an airport, to a hotel, etc. But sometimes we enjoy some hours off, and then our favorite activity is to go to a park. Almost every city has at least one park, where you can find a calm and a quiet place. Some of the songs on this cd are conceived in a park, or inspired by parks we have visited. .. .. Earlier releases are "fattigfolket" in 2003, and "Le Chien et la Fille" in 2005, both on danish ILK Music. .. .. In 2003 Fattigfolket won the 1st price in the European Jazz contest at the 'Tremplin Jazz d'Avignon' festival. As a reward, Fattigfolket was invited back the next year to play the opening concert at the Popes Palace in Avignon. The audience of 1500 were completely taken by the magic in this concert, which became the starting point for Fattigfolket international career. For the year 2007, Fattigfolket was granted ensemble support from the Norwegian Arts Council. .. .. Through communication and a balance of compositional and improvisational material, that pays homage to the contemporary jazz tradition, Fattigfolket perform original compositions written by the band members.. .. .. .... ..NOW: Get Fattigfolket on iTunes!!.. ....le chien et la fille ....fattigfolket ........ .. ..........
