The Danish band SELVHENTER is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new experimental bands in Europe. Their unique sound combines the energy of rock with free improvisation and noise but also draws inspiration from the percussion music of Africa and Southeast Asia, and modern minimalist composition. In their music, the two drummers create strong polyrhythmic patterns while the horns and violin develop simple patterns of melody. In addition, both saxophone, trombone and violin often use effect pedals to distort and manipulate their sounds. The result is beautiful, aggressive and good for dancing. SELVHENTER's live concerts are always curious, focused and full of energy.
SELVHENTER is: Sonja LaBianca (saxophone), Maria Bertel (trombone), Maria Diekmann (violin), Jaleh Negari (drums) and Anja Jacobsen (drums). The five members of the band come from some of the interesting bands on the Copenhagen experimental music scene, such as Pinkunoizu, Havens Fugle, Chimes & Bells, Gud Er Kvinde, Valby Vokalgruppe, Kirsten Ketsjer and Choir Of Young Believers.
