Tempera was performed two times last weekend.
First at the opening of the festival by:Larm
in Tromsø on Friday, and the next day at Rockefeller's
opening of their 15th anniversary in Oslo.
Sadly Sainkho from Tuva wasn't able to perform
at Rockefeller, but Anneli, Nils Petter Molvær,
Bill Laswell, Dhafer Youssef, Eivind Aarseth,
Rune Andersen and Raymond C. Pellicer made an
incredible performance in Oslo.
Musicians from four parts of the world was gathered
in Tromsø for one short week to complete Global
Tempera. With this in mind the show seemed even
more impressive, even if the music in itself
was close to perfect.
Tempera was truly world music, urban world
music. From heavy dub and slow jazz to noisy
psychedelia it made a diverse and unique feeling.
a newspaper in Tromsø, described Global Tempera
as a musical sensation! And Puls.no praised
Anneli's voice with words like exciting
and unique. Dagbladet
described the sound as "Heavy groovy rythms
and rythmic figures was followed by vocalacrobatics,
which seemed hypnotic."
reporter seemed to be the only one dissapointed
after the show in Tromsø. He thought it became
boring, even if he praised the musicians individual
performances: "Specially Anneli Drecker,
Nils Petter Molvær and Dhaffer Youssef."
