Bio

Olimpias Orkan from Gothenburg, Sweden, came together in 2017 with the intention of creating music that pushes boundaries and challenges the norms of jazz by exploring the infinite possibilities of a seven-piece band. With vivid melodies, energetic improvisation and a strong interaction on stage, the septet catches the ears and hearts of the listeners. The lyrics depicts a wide range of emotions that can occur in a human being and portrays the injustice in society in an honest and open way.
