Born: 1974

SUSANNA LINDEBORG'S MWENDO DAWA is always an adventure listening to. They were a bit of pioneers when the group was formed in the 70th when it came to combining expression of Jazz and traditional instruments together with the possibilities given by new instruments of the time. And they still are. Apart from most others fascinated by the same possibilities at the time. Musically MWENDO DAWA is now working with improvisation in serial technique with electro acoustical backgrounds but with a strong rythmical approach. The group is still now, 30 years later, as much pioneers as ever before. MWENDO DAWA is updated on all frontiers, the musical vision is still there but has changed and grown not only together with technological progress. The question rises if not MWENDO DAWA is better than ever before. MWENDO DAWA has since the start been succesfully touring in 26 countries in Europe,North and South America, Asia performing at Jazzfestivals like Montreux, Northsea and Montreal. The music is composed by Susanna Lindeborg
