This event has been and gone.
Moddi will be supported by campaigner Vanessa Berhe, founder of One Day Seyoum. Vanessa will speak about life in the prison state of Eritrea and her campaign One Day Seyoum fighting to free her journalist uncle Seyoum Tsehaye who has been in jail for 15 years.
Pål Moddi Knutsen comes from the remote and blustery northern Norwegian island of Senja, in the bipolar land of the summer Midnight Sun and winters of total darkness (only lit up by the Aurora Borealis). With a borrowed accordion and a sea-blue guitar, he began captivating listeners with music that has been described as a blend of Damien Rice and Bjork. The talented and original young musician's live performances – sometimes solo, sometimes with a band of string instruments, drums and piano – spellbind his audience into a silent trance, as they are drawn into the almost magical atmosphere of his music.
