In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week Razika gives the scoop on Bergen, Norway.

In Norway, Bergen is known for its music scene, and there are a lot of bands and things going on here. We would say that Bergen is the music capital of Norway although the city isn’t so big (around 350,000 inhabitants). Everyone knows each other, and there’s a good mood between us; if you ever need to borrow a guitar amp or just a jack cable, it’s never a problem. Bergen has a lot of bands playing different genres, and many also mix genres. That may be the reason for many bands existing here. Last but not least, Bergen is a really beautiful city surrounded by seven mountains, and we also have the sea!
