Anneli Drecker

Past events:

​With new colours on her palette.

The vocal splendour of artist and composer Anneli Drecker has tickled ear canals worldwide since the late 80s when she put Norwegian electronic pop on the map together with the group Bel Canto. She is also known for her collaboration with Röyksopp and has often written songs with the electronic duo.

The Tromsø based artist does not shy away from new challenges. In 2016, she performed at the Bergen International Festival together with Carte Blanche, and on her two latest solo releases, she moves towards a more melodious soundscape where atmospheric strings take over from danceable electronica.

In late January this year, Anneli Drecker defended her thesis at the University of Tromsø (UiT) with the project The Modern Ancient Voice. The goal was to learn new singing techniques, and Drecker has, among other things, explored throat singing, overtone singing, joik and Persian and Norwegian traditional song.

– Now I can't put it aside. It has become part of me, my voice and my expression. I have acquired new colours for my palette, says the vocalist to UiT.
