LISA GROTHERUS

Dekontee

 

Swedish reed player and singer Lisa Grotherus is a fresh new artist on the Swedish jazz scene whose original music explores a broad, thrilling and expressive soundscape, where the seemingly discrepant musical worlds of jazz and folk music come together as one. Interestingly, the inspiration for this exciting debut comes from spending ample time on the African continent, above all Liberia, where Grotherus, amid a seven-year hiatus from music altogether, witnessed the hardships and inequities of a post-civil-war-society struggling with recovery, which in turn became the hot topic for her to address by way of music. The enigmatic album title Dekontee is actually an African nickname given to Grotherus whilst residing in Liberia. Throughout ten elaborate compositions, Grotherus demonstrates with poignant musical imagination that she is an ardent and confident jazz soloist to reckon with in the years to come, backed by a nuanced and eclectic ensemble with a vast range of expression.
