Zetterlund Tribute (IR/DK)
Samara Bahrami (voc), Morten Haugshøj (g), Thomas Sejthen (b), Jesper Bo Knudsen (drm)
One life, one story, one concert
At this concert, the phenomenon that is Monica Zetterlund comes to life, albeit for just a moment on a Friday night in Aarhus.
A concert centered around beautiful Swedish songs and a portrait of a woman struggling to find herself and do what she wants – and make it fit with society's and the public's expectations.
We hear about her turbulent relationship with men, drinking, loneliness, and lovesickness, but also about her relationship with her father, stage fright, and the struggle against Jante's Law and small-town mentality.
The music is in the good hands of this group of seasoned jazz musicians: Morten Haugshøj (g), Thomas Sejthen (b), and Jesper Bo Knudsen (drm).
The Iranian-Danish singer Samara Bahrami in the front possesses a rare linguistic virtuosity that makes her credible and present in the beautiful interpretations of Swedish deep cuts as well as in her delivery of songs and lyrics.
Stories and anecdotes about Monica Zetterlund's extraordinary life make the music come alive even more.
