Sisters in Jazz International

„Sisters in Jazz“ International: unic & strong!
It was magic, happening on stage. Seven female jazz musicians from six nations met for the first time on Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival in august 2015. The crowd was paralized from the powerful energy which filled out the whole concert room. Sounds of Scandinavia, Middle & Eastern Europe and Asia were floating the atmosphere. You could feel jazz in its pure language. Raw, unmodified.

The concert was live recorded by the swedish radio. It appeared as CD called „Sisters in Jazz“ and was presented during the CD-release tour in February 2016.

Sisters in Jazz was initiated to network international female jazz musicians. It’s a development from the idea of ”Sisters in Jazz“ in USA.
