For one night only (Friday, March 15), Sweden’s official jazz club Fasching delivered an impressive evening of songs in the key of Erykah Badu, performed by a newly composed group called Mama's Conspiracy.
"Stealing" someone elses audience is not a bad thing, not at all.. After listening to the southern Swedish soul/rap/spoken word poetry crew S.T.I.C.S and interviewing and grooving to the rhythms of Trees multi-flowing beats.... I would say I'm a believer.
Speaking on S.T.I.C.S one might not be surprised of their "crossover" collaborations knowing that they are based in Helsinborg, fast becoming an inter & multi-cultural music mecca of Sweden.
AMETIST and Fasching present SWEDISH SOUL
Well, it's been bubbling under for a while but now I feel we can officially say soul is back, and we mean Scandinavian Soul. A reflection of this can be seen and heard in a series of forthcoming shows in Stockholm, Sweden promoted by DJ Ametist.
