Susanne Lundeng will perform at the Winterfest Week 2023
Through her relationship with the art form and the old traditions that follow, Susanne has developed her sound over time and has gained wide acceptance within the international scene.
In her interaction with the jazz musicians Nils-Olav Johansen and Erik Nylander, she explores the music through improvisational conversations, and in the lyrics and melodies she depicts the drama of life itself and its impact on both people and landscape. Her music has been described as deeply melancholic, subdued, tender and stormy.
"Følge" is Susanne Lundeng's 13th album. Her musical language lies faithfully in the depths of the northern Norwegian ur-rhythm, a pulsating three-bar with power and intensity and the poetic and melodious lines of folk tunes. Here, elongated, painterly musical images with the fiddle as narrator and small sensual observations in the lyrics are always close at hand.
The album has been titled "Følge". In old Norse belief, each person's companion is their guardian spirit, a companion in life from cradle to grave and acts as a harbinger and protector. "We bring with us all the people we have met throughout our lives and I am part of a playing and storytelling culture and bring the music, players and memories with me. I experience that as my companion," says Susanne.
