Frisk Frugt

Anders Lauge Meldgaard is the man behind the alias Frisk Frugt, who for several years music has fascinated us with his quirky, ever-present and refreshing approach to songwriting. 

In 2006 Frisk Frugt released the more than excellent debut Guldtrompeten, and in 2012 Anders Lauge Meldgaard gave us the masterpiece Dansktoppen møder Burkina Faso i det himmelblå rum hvor solen bor, suite. The album was nominated for the Nordic Music Prize, and was praised by, for example, the British music site The Queitus with the words "Frisk Frugt is flipping brilliant", BBC 6 Music gave way to the avant-garde and The Wire called the album "a rare beast". 

Where ‘Burkina Faso…’ took listeners on a magical musical journey from the African country of its title and back to Denmark, Anders’s Tambourhinoceros-debut found him travelling closer to home. Called Den Europæiske Spejlbue (English translation: The European Mirror-Arch), the new album consists of 12 orchestral collages, all revolving around the study of songs in Danish matched up with what you could call European world music.
