Rebekka Bakken has one of the most distinctive and exciting voices in Europe. After many years abroad, Rebekka moved back to Norway, but is still often seen on stage around festivals in Europe. It’s hard to put her in any musical booth – singer-songwriter, jazz, American, folk, soul or blues – Rebekka is in most genres. Her vocals extend over three octaves, which gives a completely distinctive performance. Rebekka Bakken has previously performed at Maijazz, and we look forward to hearing and seeing this great vocalist again!
“Tom Waits female alter ego” (Welt) “Rude good” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
“The four octave voice, the delicate, commanding vibrato – sometimes barely audible, the voice’s closest whistle heights, the deep depth, the superb technique, all in the operation of phenomenal radiance” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
