Nordic electronic jazz
Took part in jazzahead!
Bagland is a quintet consisting of five musicians, who all have their roots based in the Scandinavian sound.
The music is inspired by the deserted and open nordic landscape with lyrical and melancholic melodies characterizing the compositions. Furthermore, Bagland incorporates an electronic sound adding a playful and dynamic element to the music which contains both hope, happiness, longing, and melancholy.
NOMAD was released in 2016 and was a big part of band leader Jakob Sørensen being awarded the New Danish Jazz Act 2017.
“With this release, Sørensen is fast becoming the master of Nordic Ambient Jazz.”

Their latest release "Cirkel" is from 2019. Bagland is currently working on new material for what will become their fourth release.
"This album is a truly magical musical masterpiece from one of the up and coming stars of jazz at this time. It is, so far, one of the standout releases of 2019 and will no doubt be on many a playlist for years to come.”
