Dahl/Dalen/Søvik is an improvising trio based in Oslo. With backgrounds in free jazz, noise and avantgarde they play music in the tradition of modern free improvisation, inspired by Anthony Braxton, Mette Rasmussen, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten ect. 

The trio consists of Amalie Dahl (Dafnie, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra) on alto saxophone, Henrik Sandstad Dalen (Passe Planta, Sex Magick Wizards) on double bass, and Jomar Jeppsson Søvik (Actual Music) on drums. All three of them are part of the improvised music environment in Oslo.

Their debut album “Fairytales for daydreamers” was released March 3rd on Nice Things Records label. On this live recording from their first performance together, the listener gets to experience the trio’s immediate chemistry through a lively and adventurous 45 minute set. They move confidently through polite introductions, interrogations, deep conversations and heated arguments before at last they reach tender reconciliation, as if they were old friends playing together.

Following this release the trio will be touring in Europe:
