Fredrik Kronkvist Five
Organic fusion and groove-infused jazz with influences from all over the world with a versatile international group with members with roots from Scandinavia and Africa, all born in three different decades. The fearless, creative mind of Sweden’s highly international acclaimed saxophonist, composer and producer Fredrik Kronkvist brought this stellar group together where each member has it’s own distinctive voice blending together in a fresh sound of oneness that brings a new eclectic musical vision to life.
Pianist, keyboard-player and composer Kathrine Windfeld is considered Denmarks most successful jazz artist right now where she tours the world with her own big-band and the Katrhine Windfeld Sextet.
Guitarist Elias Källvik with roots from Ethiopia is a unique voice on today’s jazz scene and a much sought after musician that turns music into magic whenever he is in the spotlight.
Stina Andersdotter is always on point, originally from Gothenburg and is equally masterful and groovy on both the acoustic bass as the electric bass. She plays (and sings) in a vast differences of styles and has just released her debut-album with an amazing line-up presenting her own multi-musical landscapes and deep lyrics.
Drummer Adam Ross is currently nominated in the category Rising Star by the Swedish National Radio and his deep understanding of swinging polyrhythms and his astonishing tasteful technique makes him one of the brightest international stars emerging out of Sweden in modern times.
The group formed their unique sound during a long residency on one of the most updated urban live scenes in Sweden playing their own material and also inviting different established and up-and-coming guests for a head nodding crowd of hundreds of people every night. This band and its experienced members has the ability to grab the attention and turn up the heat on both smaller clubs as larger indoor and outdoor venues.
