Miman is an improvising trio consisting of fiddler Hans Kjorstad, guitarist and clarinetist Andreas Røysum and bassist Egil Kalman; three of the most distinct and active young voices on the thriving Scandinavian improv scene. You might have heard them in collaboration with people like Tobias Delius, Tristan Honsinger, Axel Dörner, Frode Haltli, Håkon Thelin, Jasper Stadhouders, Frode Gjerstad, Christian Wallumrød and Rhys Chatham, or in a plentitude of bands covering the spectrum from folk music to noise. As a trio their sound is shaped by their diverse backgrounds and influences; Norwegian, English and Indian folk music blends seamlessly with sentiments aching to free jazz and contemporary music in an organic fashion that steers clear of the dogmatic.
The trio has toured all over Europe the last years, and in early 2018 they released their debut album “Ulme”. In addition to releasing and supporting the record, Miman are also planning a string of collaborations with Swedish master percussionist Raymond Strid (known from his work with Barry Guy, Mats Gustafsson and John Russell among others).
Also tonight, a set by the new trio of Tom Ward (bass clarinet, saxophone), Charlotte Keefe (trumpet) and Otto Willberg (double bass)
