PEOPLE at Backes: Gabriel Fliflet and Ole Hamre
18 November 2022 19:00–21:00
In 2021, Gabriel Fliflet and Ole Hamre celebrated 30 years of collaboration. In March 2022, they should have visited Farsund and Backes Bu, but then they fell ill with the corona virus. All good things come in threes, and in November you can experience the duo as an all-night fireworks show together.
Fliflet / Hamre is an orchestra that really is something in itself. With accordion, drums, vocals and a selection of pots, Gabriel Fliflet and Ole Hamre have created their very own style, which has thrilled both audiences and critics in a variety of environments.
In Fliflet / Hamre's music, playfulness and empathy are central, and most things can happen: Raw Balkan tones thunder out between our Nordic minor pearls and Jewish reflections. Then the whole hall sings along before Harald Sæverud is dragged to a party with Serbian gypsies! Sometimes Ole Hamre lets the drums rest, and makes beautiful and unheard music on melody or his own pot instrument, the harmonica. - Or put on your step shoes!
The group is known for its close and lively interaction, and has collaborated with e.g. Bjørn Tomren, Kari Bremnes and Odd Nordstoga.
Fliflet / Hamre brings together music of different origins, and creates its own, personal landscape. Both people with patent leather shoes, bunad, black leather jackets or cowboy hats can be willingly led around in their colorful garden! The contrasts are great, but the experience is whole.
The concert is part of Farsund Folk Festival's concert series FOLK at Backes, arranged with support from the Norwegian Cultural Council and the Folkeakademiet.
