Tobias Elof is an internationally acclaimed ukulele player, who happens to be the first musician in the world to be taking a university education with ukulele as his main instrument. While living in Hawaii (the ukulele’s country of origin) and Canada, Elof has been tutored by some of the world’s most renowned ukulele Masters such as of the most recognised James Hill, Kimo Hussey og Byron Yasui. Elof is, with his Nordic sound, particularly famous for taking the instrument into new directions.
In Jonathan Bremer – double bass player from acclaimed Danish duo Bremer/McCoy – he has found an excellent partner to work with. Bremer’s delicate touch and minimalist approach, as well as his ability to fuse Nordic roots and modal jazz, is a perfect match to Elof’s lyrical ukulele sounds. At ALICE they will perform a matiné concert during the Vinterjazz festival. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in February.
The nationwide Vinterjazz festival celebrates its 20th anniversary across 120 venues all over Denmark on February 6-29, 2020. Read more and see full program at www.jazz.dk
