Mari Kvien Brunvoll
Mari Kvien Brunvoll has performed live for sevaral years, and finally her solo album is out on Jazzland!
The music was recorded live at three different concerts held in 2009 and 2010 and most tracks are composed (and improvised ?) by MKB, except «Everywhere you go» and «I’m going don’t you know» by Memphis Minnie.
Mari Kvien Brunvoll sings, uses live sampling and plays kalimba, kazoo, percussion and zither.
The music is atmospheric, melodic, sweet, intense, strange, and why don’t you listen yourselves, and see if you can come up with better descriptions!
No matter what you call it, it’s a great album!
The one thing I don’t like: No download code with the vinyl edition.
You might also like Stein (Urheim) and Mari’s «Daydream Community» (Jazzland).
