Paradís Sessions – discover the paradise of music in Reykjavík

in NEWS by

Do you need some inspiration for the sonic paradise? Better check out Paradís Sessions! It’s a summer series of raw, unplugged, live recorded music sessions at the coffee house Reykjavík Roasters (Brautarholt 2).

Close your eyes and imagine. What do you see? The sun, sand and sea? Or beaches, piers and plam trees?

The creators of Paradís Sessions believe in something different. The cold air, the morning frost, the sound of waves. Snowy mountains, glaciers, the midnight sun. They truly believe that Reykjavík is a paradise.

Paradís Sessions wants to capture the real life of live performance in its most basic form. Just like the natural environment around us. Showcasing how beautiful the city can be, and how a host of sources contribute to an idea of what makes paradise. From simply the weather, to community, and ultimately, to music.

A select range of Reykjavík-based artists and bands is invited to Paradís Sessions to answer the question ´where is paradise?´ on camera, followed by a short, entirely unplugged set to a small crowd at Reykjavík Roasters.

They shoot continuously, rolling from start to end, roaming the room to capture everything. The good, the bad, the nitty gritty.

The creators of Paradís Sessions want to use this performance series, and unique live session, to discover a new setting to consider as paradise. To re-imagine what contributes to make one, and to showcase the community, the talent and the inspiration that drive our paradise here in Reykjavík.

So far at Paradís Sessions performed Between Mountains, Friday Night Idols, Marteinn Sindri and Markús Bjarnason.

Make sure to be at the next session…
