One can feel dust, ash, clay, stone roads and windy storms in his voice. Throughout these dramatic feelings Moddi is creating moving and cooling shade of indie-music. However he was joined by a special show in company with Arkhangelsk Kammerorkester’s orchestra. Melodies improved by long violin tones gave smug reflection of the whole performance. Moddi’s latest album aims to wake up people forgetting of world-wide wars. He was therefore guiding the whole concert with comments of the current situation and making suitable jokes in his story telling.
Pål Moddi is a strange elf with curly messy hair around his head, so anyone could expect similar audience. The opposite is true. There were various serious-looking people more suited for a classical concert. That could be explained during the show, which was constructed with seats for sitting and provided a nice concert atmosphere.
The marvelous Marja Eira was present for one song, and she brought additional epic to the concert with her strong voice and interesting appereance.
Moddi’s songs are strongly oriented to religion motifs and so he introduced the last song with verses of the Bible. This created the highlight of the evening, followed by a well deserved standing ovation.
