Anja Skybakmoen

Tribute to Googoosh and Iranian voices

Trondheim-born vocalist Anja Skybakmoen has a versatile career behind her, both with her own band projects and as a singer in the vocal group Pitsj, to name a few.

Now she arrives at Jazzfest with a brand new album in her luggage!

In recent years, Anja has immersed herself in the music and history of the Iranian artist Googoosh, who was one of the biggest artists in Iran before the revolution in 1979. After a performance with her music on Beat for Beat on NRK, Anja experienced being contacted by people from all over the world who showed their enthusiasm for this music being promoted.

Her new music is strongly inspired by this tradition, and Anja, with her sparkling band, is able to create musical magic at the meeting point between the Nordics and the East, the likes of which we have hardly heard.
