Amgala Temple

Amgala Temple is the sound of three musical forces combined. The result is an overwhelming clash of spontaneity and control, improvisation and clairvoyance - all meshed together in a quest to make something radiant.

The mix of Lars Horntveth, Amund Maarud and Gard Nilssen is a wish come true for music fans, as they each have made great impact as bandleaders, solo artists and musicians in an array of projects - be it with Jaga Jazzist, Susanne Sundfør, Todd Terje, Morudes, Bushman’s Revenge, a-ha or Gard Nilssen’s Acoustic Unity.
