Grieg Unheard? Led by Reza, with a background from the Music Academy and the hiphop-scene, the foremost of male Norwegian opera soloists do Grieg their own way. Here are 13 Grieg songs like you have never heard them before.

Why Grieg?

“Kind of cool that I, a paki in Norwegian traditional costume, can boost Norwegian national pride with an overload of Grieg as we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian constitution” Reza states tongue in cheek. Reza and the boys love Grieg, an unrestrained love they want to share with the whole world – also those who don’t think of themselves as interested in classical music. It is a continuation of what the band has done at the local Underwater pub for years: moonshining music outside the traditional framework: directly from their hearts and to the audience.
