Described as energetic and melodic free jazz inspired by musicians like Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders and John Carter, Norway’s Friends & Neighbors create an authentic and acoustic atmosphere that refers back to the political roots of free jazz.
 
Through original and strong compositions, this has resulted in a band sound with strong identity, crystal clear presence and personality. 
 
Their second release Hymn for a Hungry Nation was received with 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in DownBeat Magazine.
