The Copenhagen based, Bandapart, is a new band formed by four young musicians who individually have already influenced the sound of Danish jazz.

The guitar and electric wurlitzer piano weave lines in and out of each other, often creating a myriad of melodies and sounds. The new repetoire, The Bandapart Preludes (not recorded yet), is a series of short, minimalistic pieces, repetitive, often dissonating with both character from distorted and airy-lyrical passages. The members of Bandapart have performed internationally with own groups, and with a.o.
