In my Jazz for Dummies #2 – Tings introduction to Jazz – from 2011 one of the tracks I played was Keith Jarret and Jan Gabarek’s Spiral Dance. I posted the track with this comment: My dream is to see Garbarek playing live with Sukarma…
This comment was NOT coming to me from out of nowhere. I got the idea when I saw Sukarma for the first time in 2009 at Gurukul. When Mariano Albello joined the band onstage the first thing that struck me was Jan Gabarek performing with Sukarma at the Royal Danish Theater (Inspired by Bajafondo’s concert at the same venue a few months before – THE WILDEST CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO – CHECK THE FOOTAGE HERE ON NME)
Christmas Eve our friends Murray and Anni gave us two CD’s. One of them is Sukarma with Ibsen…. I have played the non stop for two days.
Garbarek is Norwegian – and so is/was Ibsen
What are these Nepal/Norwegian connections?
