Norwegian band headlining Kunming International Music Week

By in News on

Tonight Norwegian band The Loch Ness Mouse will play the first of three Kunming shows this week. This evening's performance is part of the second night of the Kunming International Music Week, a week of musical events around town organized by TCG Nordica.

This is the second year in which Nordica has organized a week of performances by international and local musicians, with The Loch Ness Mouse as the biggest band to participate in the week to date. TLNM's album '11-22' won the Oslo Prize three years ago for best album.

The band was formed in 1992 by Ole Johannes (guitar, vocals) and Jørn Åleskjær (co-songwriter) and is rounded out by Ruben Dalen (drums), Ådne Hovda (bass), Kåre Eriksen (guitar), Kjartan Vestvik (keyboards) Christina Høgetveit Staxrud (vocals) and Torstein Krogedal (saxophone). The band describes itself as a "dynamic collage of rock, soul, jazz and even hiphop.

The Loch Ness Mouse plays tonight at Yuansheng Studio at 8:30, admission is 40 yuan. The band plays tomorrow at TCG Nordica at 8:00, admission is 40 yuan (20 yuan for students). Its last show in Kunming will be a free Thursday night show at Halfway House at 9:30.
