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.
A perfect storm of imaginative chords composed of guitar and torrential bass flows, the light whispers of percussion and an extremely precise pianism in reverberating the harmony. A compelling soundscape. Album of the week.
(All About Jazz - IT)
An explorationary journey into a new sonic realm. Deep.
(Nite Stylez - DE)
A beautiful album which flows with imagination and improvisation.
(Info135 - Argentina)
“Transparence” highlights the crystalline talent of the four European musicians. A successful effort.
(Radioaktiv - IT)
The great quality of the album lies in its diversity, while developing a coherent universe, rooted in the culture of listening and sharing, communion and poetry
