The third day of Reykjavik Jazz Festival will take place in Tjarnarbíó, the old cinema beside the city’s town hall and the pond ‘Reykjavíkurtjörn’. The evening consists of 3 performances.
Award-winning Anglo-Scandinavian trio Phronesis have been one of the most talked about and acclaimed European bands over the past decade. And for good reason. Through their previous seven studio and live albums, the trio have built a worldwide reputation for the melodic fluency of their writing, muscular, bold sound and visceral, highly kinetic musical interplay. We Are All, the band’s eighth and newest studio album, offers plenty of emotional range and musical richness for committed Phronesis fans. But in its title and scope, it also seeks to focus attention on an important message of togetherness and balance beyond the one they demonstrate on the bandstand. Formed back in 2005, Phronesis have captured the hearts and minds of audiences around the world, with their engaging grooves, irresistible rhythmic energy and breathtaking group interplay.
