A melismatic voice mixing tradition and pop
When Ingrid Jasmin's debut single ‘Pilgrim’ dropped, the music listener met an artist quite unlike anything else on the Norwegian music scene. Her electro-acoustic fusion of traditions in a modern production, performed with a characteristic vocal style, is already drawing attention. The trilingual artist studied the traditional flamenco ‘cante’ alongside traditional norwegian music, setting the tone for the sound of her debut album 'Luna'.
'A fantastic voice'

While growing up in Telemark, a nucleus for Norwegian folk music, Ingrid Jasmin developed her ties to the Spanish speaking world through visiting her family in Costa Rica. Living years in Cuba and Spain, she dedicated herself to the study of traditional music. On her debut album 'Luna' Ingrid Jasmin collaborates with a stellar crew of musicians such as Mathias Eick, Eyolf Dale, Tuva Færden and some of Norway's top producers.
Though a new name on the Norwegian music scene, Ingrid Jasmin is already on the radar of the festivals, having performed at the opening concerts of notable traditional music venues, such as Førde Traditional and World Music Festival and Telemarkfestivalen. Bookings in 2022 include Oslo World and several Norwegian concert halls.
Ingrid Jasmin was recently granted support by the Norwegian Arts Council to compose and produce her first album, and is selected by Music Norway to participate in their one-year export program EX.TRA 2022.
