The proceeds will go to the Rafto Foundation for human rights.
Most of the new songs on the soon to be released Golden Hour album has been produced on a piano in Kygo's home in Bergen. Starting Saturday this very piano will be auctioned. A beautiful brass plaque with Kygo's signature is mounted onto the Yamaha U3 Model piano that Kygo purchased in 2017.
"I hope the new owner will let the piano be used to bring joy to themselves and others. Bringing joy and happiness to other people is really all my music making is about. Let this piano keep on doing this while the auction money goes to Rafto Foundation to help those who are in the frontline and struggle for a better world for all of us," says Kygo.
The U series piano has for long been a leading choice among professional musicians. An expansive soundboard and acoustic chamber give the extended power and projection, with the peerless tonal and expressive control. The U3 model is currently retailing at approx. USD 13,000.
The auction starts on Saturday at 18.00 CET, and a link for bidding will be publsihed at www.goldenhourpiano.com shortly.
