Lux Boreal – A nomadic festival of Nordic music! Composers/artist that are playfully shaping their own musical language between pop, jazz, contemporary classical, and electronic music.
Johanna Borchert – piano and vocals
Simon Toldam – keyboards
Peter Bruun – drums
Since her first song album FM Biography, both jazz and pop audiences have been deeply impressed by Johanna Borchert. German public radio station BR5 declared the record a «masterpiece of quiet tones» and the Süddeutsche Zeitung heard «a new cosmos of sound full of harmoniously balanced contrasts». Many journalists drew comparisons to Laurie Anderson and Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos and Björk as well as to the later work of Kate Bush.
Now the multi-award-winning song poet, singer and pianist has released the powerful new album Amniotic, which again positions itself between genres. At the center of the songs and improvisations is her refined playing on the grand piano, rooted in jazz and classical music, with her dynamic, charismatic voice.The songs of Amniotic are intense, sonically revolving around the theme of the development of life before, during and immediately after birth.
