Lama is Nils Martin Larsen. Nils Martin Larsen is Lama. A band that has evolved into its present form over the last 2 years. That is two years of intense song-writing and studiowork to figure out what the thoughts in Larsen's head sound like. And here it is! More powerful than ever, more pure than ever and music with roots all over the place! The last 7 months have gone towards perfecting the live-portion of Larsen's beautiful Lama-land.
Live , Lama is an explosion. Six people on stage, and enough instruments to make the most eager musician blush. Lama is six people playing their hands, throats and feet till they swell up.
Nils Martin Larsen is a unique talent that up to now primarily has been famous for playing the keys in electronica jazz collective Jaga Jazzist, into which he was inducted at the age of eighteen. Three years down the road he has produced a handful of good songs which he presents in a world he refers to as Lamaland. On stage he has with him four other musicians who, in combination with the light design of Nils Martin’s brother, create a very special audiovisual live experience. Lama gave a very concert at Oslo venue Blå earlier this month, and we simply had to book them. When seeing Lama live, one can’t help but think of other quality acts. There’s no doubt that Lama is inspired by both Sigur Rós and Mew as well as Jaga Jazzist and Kim Hiorthøy. If you like one or more of these artists, then you’re sure to dig Lama. Welcome to Lamaland!
