Funky festival night with some serious bass.
Danish Ida Nielsen got her life turned upside down when Prince discovered her on the Internet in 2010. Shortly after she joined his band and toured with him with The New Power Generation and later 3rdeyegirl until the iconic artist passed away last year.
For Ida Nielsen the time she got to work with Prince was «the most magic and instructive journey ever» and something she has brought with her in her solo career. The bass player, composer, and singer has released three albums this far. The last one, TURNITUP, was released this autumn and is dedicated to Prince. The music may best be described as a mix of good old-fashioned funk, with a dash of hip hop, reggae, and world music – garnished with catchy tunes. And of course a lot of bass.
Ida Nielsen will also appear as a soloist at the first performance of Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin’s new work on the concert with London Sinfonietta in Håkonshallen July 02.
At Logen it is all about Ida, her bass, and her band, and she promises us a funk show filled with energy, good vibes, and groove.
