golden jar second edition!

] golden jar is a container for new music, performances, experiments and collaborations — supporting female / trans / non-binary artists who are cutting the edge on their own terms [

golden jar #2 hosts a night of diverse influences, beats, poetry and collaborations with artists from Bergen and beyond. A golden line-up to debut new live performances, each stepping outside their usual spheres to experiment with new formations and creations.

Oyoko is a multi-disciplinary Ghanaian-Dutch artist and DJ based in London, UK and has just this year started to release her own music. She uses her experiences as a black woman to reflect on ancestry, spirituality and identity to forge her own (African) narrative through poetry, spoken word, film and sound. Oyoko’s first release “UNMORALITY: A STORY ABOUT RESILIENCE rather than vengeance” explores liberation and rebellion in her re-definition of justice in a flawed system.

Bergen’s one-woman-show brings her flute and electronics with harmonies prepared especially for the night. Prepare for something real, something shallow, something wrong, something whole, something simple and alive. Moves in you that you didn’t know existed. Moves that make your bones feel stronger. Come ready to move and be moved.

A newly formed collective uniting some of Bergen’s most golden voices. Musicians Amalie Holt Kleive, Gabriela Garrubo and Rakel Anna Kristjánsdóttir fuse dreamy harmonies, improvisation and electronics to interpret female producers and musicians they admire — and debut their own collaborative creations.

Amalie Holt Kleive is a jazz vocalist creating electronically danceable music. She combines vocal melodies with improvisation and harmony taken from jazz, beats from house and electronic music, and lyrics inspired by folk songs.

Gabriela Garrubo a Norwegian-Brazilian singer, currently living in Bergen. Her music fuses inspiration from Brazilian and Norwegian music, jazz and English and Portuguese lyrics.

Rakel Anna Kristjánsdóttir is an Icelandic vocalist living in Bergen. Rooted in improvisation and jazz, her music moves between everything from hip-hop, electronic music to soul. Rakel is part of the band Húm and founder of Jazzsass, at Cafe Opera, a concert series supporting female jazz musicians.

golden jar uses the font NotCourierSans, a re-interpretation of the Nimbus Mono font designed by the collective OpenSourcePublishing on the occasion of the 2008 Libre Graphics Meeting in Wroclaw. They say:

“We took Nimbus as the base of the design. We proceeded to remove the serifs with raw cuts. We did not soften the edges. We are not here to be polite.”
