Corpo, Espace Méditerranée, showcase
Corpo is the quintet of the Swedish saxophonist, flutist and composer Mikael Godée, where his warm and lyrical soprano saxophone creates an unique musical atmosphere. Staple character of the modern Swedish jazz stage, influencer for the young creative artists of the new jazz stage, Mikael Godée was rewarded with a “Grammis Award” and a “Jazz in Sweden Award”. Corpo (Ebba Westerberg – percussion, singing / Anna Lund – drum / Thomas Markusson – bass / Lars-Erik Norrström – piano, keyboard) celebrates this year its 25th anniversary, and wants to use the occasion to write another chapter of its history by releasing a new album “Solid”. Its jazz, based on original compositions by Mikael Godée, is a combined improvisation of what defines nordic jazz and Swedish folklore, African and Asian beats and grooves. A warm and sensitive music without borders.
