guitar talents in recent years"
"Ein junge genius"
- Jazzpodium Magazine
Three musicians from three continents. Three world artists on their respective instruments.
An outstanding example of the unifying force of music... MEET FREEDOMS TRIO :
Acoustic guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam - originally from Bergen, Norway - has been establishing himself as one of the great Scandinavian jazz guitarists of the new generation. For more than a decade he has engaged in widespread international tours and collaborations living and working between bases in Stockholm - Sweden and Recife - Brasil. Together with his friends and collegues, international top musicians bassist/vocalist Rubem Farias from Salvador Da Bahia, Brasil and drummer/singer Deodato Siquir from Maputo, Mozambique, (both based in Sweden) the band 'Freedoms Trio' is formed.
Following up the great success of the previous album titled "Freedoms Trio" (2016), in the spring of 2018 the band released
"FREEDOMS TRIO II" - arguably an even stronger release, continuously in the vain of an afro jazz rock expression,
however firmly in the present.
The band has performed more than 150 concerts across Europe, Africa and the United States since 2016 and is currently recording
their third album an preparing for extensive touring throughout 2020.
