Liepaja Art Forum: Nils Berg Cinemascope. Jazz trio
In Nils Berg Cinemascope, the trio formed in 2009 together with drummer Christopher Cantillo and bassist Josef Kallerdahl, that boundlessness is taken to its extreme. Through video clips of singers and musicians from all corners of the world, the band creates new music as well as new venues, where Sweden, through a projector placed on stage, meets Bhutan, Texas, Osaka or India. A concert experien- ce beyond the ordinary, where the border between digital and acoustic technique is being erased: all of it is performed live with the video guests projected behind the trio. 

Nils Berg is known as one of the most influential voices in Scandinavian jazz. Since the debut in 2004, he has released eight albums as a leader, and is known for broad collaborations with such vastly different worlds as Håkan Hellström, the Cullberg Ballet, Forss and Mando Diao.

The band has released three full length albums, the debut record Popmotion (2011), Vocals (2013) and Searching For Amazing Talent From Punjab (2016).
