Lisa Björänge has brought the favorites in Stockholm, Josef Kallerdahl and Fredrik Ljungkvist, went via Gothenburg and picked up Fabian Kallerdahl and Ossian Ward. Together, they take on material from the upcoming album on HOOB records, but also tackle some of Lisa's originals from previous records. In Lisa's universe there are no pointers or preconceived notions. The music always take its own path. She surrounds herself with musicians who let their whimsy dictate the flow and loves to take risks. Then you reap the biggest profits. And if you were to drive down a ditch, you can make great music out of it. Everything is fantastic possibilities in Björänge's music.

In Finnish, Mieli means mind, spirit, meaning, mind and consciousness, so it is no coincidence that this duo chose this particular name.In 2016, Sebastian and Amanda started writing songs together in a mutual collaboration where both are responsible for text and music, Mieli was formed.
The music is characterized by a shared love for powerful, minimalistic and devotional tones and lyrics from jazz, popular music and wisdom. Sometimes it is possible to hear several minutes of meditative improvisation with text and notes, sometimes it is just a song with the simplicity of a show that is enough.In a meditative and responsive interplay, they let the music and the lyrics run free and take new directions that make the music always different from time to time.
On March 17 this year, Mieli released her debut album, recorded in the spring of 2021 in Studio Lur in Stockholm.

The guitarist and composer Agnes Persson is one of the young musicians who have renewed the Swedish jazz scene in recent years. Her debut album In Collaboration With Flowers (Havtorn Records, 2021) stood out especially among the Swedish jazz releases that year, thanks in large part to Agnes original compositions and arrangements, which take up a lot of space on the album. The release led, among other things, to a nomination in the Newcomer of the Year category during the Manifest Gala 2022. It was also named Guitar Jazz of the Year by Lira Musikmagasin.
In 2023, she continues her artistic exploration, this time in trio format. She has bassist Jakob Ulmestrand and drummer Ludwig Aronsson with her. For this project, Agnes has delved deeply into various concepts to develop a characteristic interplay, as well as created new original compositions for these particular musicians. The band has a distinctive sound with a very dynamic expression that reflects the musicians' artistic identities. Exclusively for this concert, they have brought the pianist and composer Rasmus Mannervik. Rasmus is a Stockholm-based pianist whose playing consists of great sensitivity and spontaneity. His touch is soft and emotional, which creates a personal touch on the music that is hard not to like.
"Agnes is the starting point and center of the music. Her electric guitar sets a lingering mood with such a clear tone that the guitar remains in the music even when she plays so quietly that it is barely audible, or not playing at all."- Bengt Eriksson, Lira Musikmagasin
