Nordvegen: Moddi

Festival concert in Skjerjehamn

Next event:
​Musical storytelling with strong social engagement.

The Northern Norwegian artist Moddi can be difficult to pigeonhole, and through his music, he crosses both genres, languages ​​and national borders with beautiful, melancholic songs and a tireless drive.

Moddi has been called a musician who really wants something: to give the world the music it needs. His latest album, Like in 1968 (2019), is a celebration of everyday activism and deals with topics such as Norwegian arms exports, power play, the climate crisis and the importance of caring. Last summer he performed The New North during the Varanger Festival. This was the beginning of a bigger project where he aims to establish a Norwegian-speaking, strong and influential folk-pop that is relevant to our time and has Northern Norway as its basis.

This is the first time the Bergen International Festival visits Skjerjehamn, the old trading town which used to be an important hub for fishing, commerce and industry. Here, based on his own songs and stories, Moddi picks up the tone from Nordvegen, the festival's musical voyage of several years themed by millennia of life lived in treaty with the sea.​​
