I am proud to announce scoring music for the feature film Berts Dagbok. Directed by Michael Lindgren, known for his work with Grotesco. My choir Klubbkören plays a part in the movie. And I had the fortune to make some of the cues together with Grotesco’s go-to composer Andreas Grill.
Big game day last Thursday when we joined three bands into one on the stage of Dalhalla. Oskar Linnros – Seinabo Sey – Timbuktu & Damn!
Oskar Linnros headed the planning of this event. Oskar, me and Seinabo Sey‘s MD Emmanuel Hailemariam worked closely together to sync our music.
One of the most fun parts was writing a vocal arrangement for Seinabo’s song Easy. And performing with vocalists from all three bands. Singers: Seinabo Sey, Sarah Verdier, Kendra Egerbladh, Djara Sow, Daniela Sörensen, Christoffer Hiding, Svante Lodén, Måns Mernsten, Jens Lindgård and me.
After two years work by producer Johanna Olofsson and Griot, my choir Klubbkören finally had the chance to make two performances together with legendary Mahotella Queens from Johannesburg, South Africa.
As a DJ I loved playing their old Jive records and I have done several mashups and mixes based on their sound, as this mash with Busta Rhymes.
In Malmö I was happy to introduce a young star, Feline Andersson, to our audience. Saxophonist Sofi Hellborg joined in and the Queens had a great little band comping. 1700 people were dancing in the amphitheatre of Pildammsparken.
Then it was off to Stockholm for a beautiful concert under the rough concrete bridge of Trädgården, arranged by Re:orient.
