Sisters of Invention
Sisters of Invention is a Swedish duo made up of sisters Malin and Karolina Almgren. In recent years, they have collaborated with a number of famous musicians and artists, and been praised, in both Sweden and the rest of Europe, for their unique sound.
In 2016, the Sisters of Invention won the Euroradio Jazz Competition in Amsterdam and in the autumn of 2017, they received the Swedish Radio award Jazzkatten in the category "group of the year". They have collaborated with the professional big band, Bohuslän Big Band, this resulted in the record release "A space of color" (2017), an album consisting of music composed and arranged by the sisters. They have released three critically acclaimed albums "Over & Again" (2013), "Navigating" (2015) and "SOL" (2018). This autumn, the EP "Nostalgia" also came out.
Sisters of Invention's duo repertoire is a stripped-down concept where the sisters give themselves more space as improvisers and instrumentalists. The set consists basically of the drum set and saxophone, topped with vocals, loops and sampling pad. The music is described as colorful and swinging at the same time as it is poetic and vulnerable. The focus is on strong melodies and rhythms.
Prepare to be amazed at the variety of sounds and styles that this duo can produce.
