Emmeluth’s Amoeba is a strong Danish/Norwegian quartet consisting of four exciting musicians from the Scandinavian scene. The group has toured extensively for the past 4 years, including live concerts at Saalfelden Jazz Festival, Artacts and Oslo Jazz to name a few. With creative music that moves through characters of free jazz to chamber music like shapes with fierce energy, it is hard to be left untouched. Pianist Christian Balvig has made a mark both as a musician leading his own group and playing with the colossal danish supergroup Efterklang as well as composing music for large orchestras such as Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra.

Guitarist Karl Bjorå is a strong voice on the scene of improvised music and has recorded and toured extensively with his own groups Megalodon Collective, Yes Deer and Aperture for years all around Europe, USA and Asia.

Drummer Ole Mofjell is a force of nature playing with ECM recording legends Jon Balke and Norwegian Powerhouse guitarist Hedvig Mollestad. Last but not least, leader and main composer for Emmeluth’s Amoeba, Signe Emmeluth has made a strong imprint on the scene during the last 5 years, playing with Kresten Osgood as well as being a part of Trondheim Jazzorkester, and Gard Nilssen’s Supersonic Orchestra.

“This young Danish alto saxophonist (based in Oslo) is an exceptional discovery.” – Matthieu Joaun, Citizenjazz

“Emmeluth’s Amoeba plays with fast and almost telepathic interplay but leaves enough space for individual solos.” Free Jazz Collective, Eyal Hareuveni

“It confirms that the quartet, in an immensely crowded scene, has defined its own corner in no time. It is difficult to find better proof of class.” – Enola, (BE) Guy Peters

“We are listening to jazz of today” – Arild R. Andersen, Jazz i Norge
