Celebrating the genius of Nuevo Tango
Johan Bridger studied at the Malmø Academy of Music and Northwestern University in Chicago IL.
In 2004 Johan was awarded 1st Prize at the Swedish Soloist Competition and the International Marimba Duo Competition in Belgium and has since performed at prestigious festivals all over the world as well as appearing regularly as soloist with orchestra in newly written works often dedicated to him. He has recorded for Caprice Records in addition to making several recordings for both Swedish radio and television. In addition to his own ceaseless exploration of all things percussive and the marimba in particular, Bridger seeks to inspire others by giving lectures and master classes in Sweden and abroad. He also teaches at The Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Odense, The Malmø Academy of Music and Sundsgarden School of Music.
