indieberlin review and photo gallery: nordic light Aurora Aksnes


Aurora played a showcase within the framework of last week’s Berlin Music Week in Glaushaus in Arena and moved everyone that was there.

Relaxed and sure of herself on stage, she has a powerful voice that hits home just as hard whether it’s soaring and crashing or moaning and whispering. Her songs too are strong and emotive and with enough variation in the space of the set to keep the attention of the crowd, plus she’s got a great band to back her up. Famed for being an auto-didact, Aurora started composing at the age of 10. She’s been on Norway’s Petroleum label and just last week signed a deal for Europe with Universal.
