haiku biography

Haiku started as a solo project for Henrik Hytteballe, releasing the album haiku
nov. 2006. Henrik Hytteballe compose and play piano and keyboards.
haiku was recorded with help from fine musicians and singers and produced by Freddy Albrektsen. The music is ambient music and rock melting together. It is a perfect soundtrack for pictures or for a quiet night at home in the sofa.

When making the new album mondo, Henrik teamed up with singer and guitarist Sokomo to create the tale of Mañana; the hidden continent and the story of Prince Mondo. In the late 80ties Sokomo and Henrik Hytteballe played together in a duo called haiku. Today they are reunited as haiku, because making music is so important for both of them. Together they create valid music with much substance and sensibility.
Sokomo wrote the lyrics and Henrik Hytteballe composed the music. Together with 5 musicians they recorded mondo, a rock concept album. Shakespeare, Philosophers and the Bible inspire the story; many fine British rock bands inspire the music from Pink Floyd, Simple Minds to Editors and Bloc Party.
Freddy Albrektsen again produced the album, and the production is sharp and distinctive, making a perfect balance between music and vocal.

Sokomo and Henrik Hytteballe are working on new material and are preparing live performances for 2009 together with Freddy Albrektsen.
