If you like music, and to be entertained, be sure to catch one of Vulture Industries this month.
London Jazz Festival annually celebrates the world of jazz across London venues. The festival has had a long association with Norwegian jazz over the past decades and Norwegian artists of all generations are featured in this year’s programme.

If you try to put Broen’s music into one specific genre, you might have a problem. The ever-growing Norwegian band has created their own unique universe, describing their style as a mix of britpop, pop, hip hop, acid punk, Paul Simon, West-African rhythm and more. Strange as it might sound, Broen delivers fresh and cool music to the world.
This month you can catch the flavourful band, who just released the record I <3 Art, on tour with Islandic MAMMÚT across the country.
