Cercle brings to your home a once-in-a-lifetime experience; a performance by Sofiane Pamart under the Northern Lights in Finland.

Aurora Borealis… Since the start of their project, the Cercle team has been dreaming about this one. They gave a one-of-a-kind live performance in Finland, far north of the Arctic Circle. The show was rescheduled due to the uncertainty of seeing the northern lights, but we’re now able to see the magic.

Such a unique setting deserved a truly unique performance. Cercle is delighted to host Sofiane Pamart, a gifted pianist, for an exclusive concert under the northern lights. This time there are no controllers or drum machines, just the artist and the sound of his piano.

Sofiane Pamart’s show under the Northern Lights

Not only is performing a show under the northern lights a huge technical and human challenge, but it’s also a big step into the unknown. For this phenomenon to occur, many conditions must be met, even if Cercle has spent an entire week hunting alongside an aurora hunter.

What can I say? 🙈

What happened last night is a magical moment that I’ll remember always 🙏🏽🍀 such a powerful & poetic atmosphere to share my music w/ u all

I felt so much emotions from that sky that I had to give back from my piano • It was tough as my fingers were literally frozen ❄️ I struggled until the very last note as I knew the moment was special.

When I woke up this morning I was still receiving your messages from all over the world and I started to realize what we did was crazy.

There will be the 4K replay on Cercle’s YouTube channel and it will coincide with the release of a 3-song EP, just for this special occasion.
