The Fika Session
Fika is a scandinavian ritual that involves coffee & a good long chat - it's all about communication, it takes you out of you everyday and gives you a minute to focus on what's in front of you - boldly and honestly. The fika sessions is all about connection, communication, quality & creativity!
It's the conversation you never get to have. We create a unique opportunity for both the artist, the brand and the audience to interact and explore during our sessions.
Step like a Giant Music is the instigator of this unique music session, spearheaded by Nujazz singer Cecilia Stalin (KOOP), wanting to create a connection between the artist, the participator and the brand. Each gig might have a topic that the audience can react to or ask questions about & the event is constructed in a way to get the communication going.
The evening is a collaborative effort with Norwegian Rain & T-Michael, Ruby Hernandez, Simon Smyth, Strange Hill & Frida Industries - so lots of exciting brands to explore and get to know.
Come down to our LAUNCH NIGHT on the 26th of October at 7.30pm -featuring the instigator herself Cecilia Stalin performing new music from her upcoming album!!
