Jazz Baltica 2012: To the sea with Nils Landgren

Jazz Baltica is literally heading for new shores: After 21 years the festival Jazz Baltica moves from Salzau to the coast of the Baltic Sea. From June 28th until July 1st the stars of the jazz-scene will be on stage in Husum and at the Evers-Werft in Niendorf. Besides the concerts on the main stage, this year there will be a free Open-Air-Program, the Night-Stage, and a program for children. As the new artistic director Nils Landgren will be responsible for this year’s program.
The Swedish trombonist represents Jazz around the Baltic Sea like no other. For many years he has a very close connection as an artist to Jazz Baltica. In this context Landgren wants to return to the original idea of the festival: The musical exchange between artists of the Baltic region. Therefore Scandinavian, Polish and German artists get together at the Jazz Baltica 2012.

Gold German Award for “The Moon, The stars & You”

Nils Landgren Quartet received a Gold German Award for his new opus:
“The Moon, The Stars & You”.

Funk For Live
Funk For Life© returns to Kibera

Two years after the launch of the Funk For Life project in September 2009, the team is going back to Kibera (Nairobi, Kenya) in November 2011.

Created & initiated by Swedish Jazz artists Nils Landgren & Magnum Coltrane Price, and supported by National Geographic Photographer Mattias Klum & Peter Östlund film-maker, and former General Director of the Swedish section of Doctors Without Borders, Dan Sermand. The project aims to raise public awareness about the acute and basic needs in the urban slums and has been endlessly advocated over the past two years in various media and in front of public audiences all around the world.

Striving for more than a year to return to Kibera, the team once more generously supported by Yamaha (instruments), AIR FRANCE KLM (transport) & Médecins Sans Frontières (logistics), will proceed with its second trip on the ground to perform a second musical instruments distribution to music schools in the slums of Kibera and musical workshops to sensitise and teach the kids about these music schools.

This second trip will also aim to finalise a movie/documentary about the Funk For Life project, which started in 2009. The documentary focuses on the living conditions of the population of the slum of Kibera and the role that Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders plays in providing free access to health care in their clinics inside the slums.
