Gazpacho are an art rock band from Norway. Gazpacho's music has been described by one critic as being “post-ambient nocturnal atmospheric folk world rock”.
"We are a very unlikely mixture of people really, not the average types you'd expect to see in the same band… so we thought Gazpacho, which really is the bastard of soups (meshed up vegetables served cold), was the perfect name for our group. With Gazpacho you get a surprise, something unexpected, something out of the norm, a 'positive' contradiction. We feel this describes our band very well."Thomas Anderson, Gazpacho
The core of the band consists of Jan-Henrik Ohme (vocals), Jon-Arne Vilbo (guitars), and Thomas Andersen (keyboards, programming, production). They started making music together in 1996 and the band has since expanded with long time members Mikael Krømer (violin, mandolin, guitars, co- producer), Robert R Johansen (drums), and Kristian Torp (bass).
The band's latest album 'Fireworker' was released in September 2020.
