The band Marit Sandvik & Nova Onda has embraced the Brazilian music and MPB-tradition. Based in the very north of Norway, the six musicians have made their own blend.
With a gentle touch of jazz as well as some Norwegian lyrics, Marit Sandvik & Nova Onda present their own originals but also new interpretations of well-known Brazilian classics.
The single "Urolig Samba" is their first release, announcing their coming full length album "Flor" to be released in January 2018. The single release will be followed up by a release concert at Lofoten Jazzfestival on the 20th of October 2017.
