Welcome Home – Jazz!

Jazz duo Marína and Mikael - Straight home

Þessi viðburður er liðinn

The HARPA Welcome Series

presents home concerts with young musicians. It reaches out to those who have recently finished their studies abroad, inviting them to introduce themselves and their accomplishments to the audience at home, thus giving them a platform and an opening into professional life as musicians. Some young artists create their professional ground abroad and this series offers a possibility for our audience to follow their progress. Others come home to nurture other young talents and play a part in the extensive Icelandic musical scene. The Harpa Welcome Series shares with you our best young international Icelandic musicians: vocalists and instrumentalists, composers and ensembles of every genre — at home—in Reykjavik’s extraordinary Harpa Concert Hall.

Presented in cooperation with the Association of Icelandic Musicians.

The jazz concerts in the Harpa Welcome series take place in the beautiful Björtuloft hall on the 5th floor at 8pm.

The Harpa Welcome Series is free and everyone is welcome to listen!


Singer Marína Ósk Þórólfsdóttir and guitarist Mikael Máni Ásmundsson are the jazz duo Marína and Mikael. Their cooperation began when they were both studying at the Konservatorium in Amsterdam and after three years of making music together, they are now introducing their first cd, “Beint heim” or “Straight home” in the Harpa Welcome home series. Mikael Máni´s arrangements envelop Marina´s clear voice in the characteristic texture of the acoustic guitar.
