Ever since 2010 when he invited her to Minnesota for a jam, Ida Nielsen was holding down the low end for the legendary artist Prince (until his very sad and untimely passing in april 2016). The funk was happening at the jam and shortly after she joined his band “the New Power Generation” and went on a almost two year long world tour including numerous tv shows as well as huge concerts.
In 2013 the power house 4 piece rockband “3rdeyegirl” was thrown in the mix. Ida describes playing with music legend Prince as “a huge gift” and as “the most magical musical journey ever, and an on-going learning experience beyond all imagination. Ida also has her own very funky project and has so far released 2 albums. Her music is best described as a mixture of oldschool funk blended with hiphop, reggae and world music flavors -with very ear catching melodies on top.
