HITRA plays imaginative original music and improvisations.

Born at the Norges Musikkhøgskole in Oslo, the band reunites four artists who have extensively investigated contemporary art forms: Hilmar Jensson (guitar), Alessandro Sgobbio (piano, compositions), Jo Berger Myhre (bass) and Oyvind Skarbo (drums).

Inspired by a Norwegian county which covers hundred islands, islets and skerries, Hitra creates a genre-fluid journey into lost and hidden places.

Debut album Transparence has been released on February 19, 2021 under AMP Music & Records.
