Since 2013, Danish quartet Kalaha’s multi-award-winning sound has been characterized by a melting pot of worldwide musical cultures including Brazilian Samba, Anatolian rock, African highlife, desert blues, and contemporary Western electronic music, resulting in acclaim from critics and vinyl connoisseurs alike. Their sixth album ‘Nord Havn’ is available on April Records.

The record follows on from their 2022 release ‘Tutku’, a collaboration with the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra and vocalist Hilal Kaya celebrating the sound of Turkish music in the 70s. The band’s new album marks a conscious return to their early sound of an instrumental quartet.

Recorded over two snowy weeks in December in the outer banks of Nordhavn – Copenhagen’s old industrial harbor – through their collection of nine original compositions Kalaha pays tribute to their hometown, and to the memory of a rapidly gentrifying area of their city.
