Singer Emilia Mårtensson’s new project featuring trumpeter Fulvio Sigurta, guitarist Luca Boscagin, bassist Sam Lasserson and percussionist Adriano Adewale.

‘Loredana’ is a new album project by the award winning vocalist Emilia Mårtensson featuring guitarist Luca Boscagin, percussionist Adriano Adewale, trumpeter Fulvio Sigurta and bassist Sam Lasserson.

‘Loredana’ explores the adversity and the wilderness of the term mother, celebrating the infinite observations about the ‘mother – child relationship’, and how this can shape us throughout our lives.  Initially inspired through four specific questions that Emilia asked her audience about their relationship to their mothers, her boundary pushing and original music crosses borders between Scandinavian folk, jazz and art.pop. One of the questions was ‘describe your mother with one word’ to which her friend Craig answered ‘There’!

Emilia Mårtensson is a London based Swedish vocalist and composer of considerable repute. After her three latest album releases Emilia has built a well- deserved reputation as one of the most exciting vocalists on the UK Jazz scene and she was awarded ‘Vocalist of the Year-2016′ at The Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

Her gently expressive voice and highly personal compositions are firmly rooted within the folklore and countryside of her native southern Sweden, adding to the mystique and allure of a distinctive and truly original artist, but also she is investigating her Slovenian roots. She also sings regularly with the trio Elda, just returning from a barnstorming tour of USA and with Adam Waldmann's Kairos Quartet
