Helge Lien Trio (Norway) has performed at the first Baku International Jazz Festival.

The audience highly appreciated the jazz trio for its unique style, Azernews reports.

Helge Lien is a synthesis of two traditions, America and Scandinavia. The band connects different cultures through its music. Its music features the lyrical traditions of Bill Evans, avant-garde improvisations as well as ethnic motives.

Helge Lien, Johannes Eick (bass), and Knut Aalefjaer (drums) created a fabulously meditative atmosphere of chamber music at the Orange Grove restaurant.

Notably, the first Baku International Piano Festival kicked off on May 20-27.

World-famous pianists from Azerbaijan, Turkiye, Poland, the Czech Republic, France, and other countries took part in the festival.
