Stories of red wine and love of flamenco songs are gently blended with Nordic-Jazz textures. This tasty cocktail is inspired by those musical traditions born through the fusion of cultures sharing the same land. Their stories are sung by the deep voices of instruments with one foot in the tradition and the other one in current society.
