Kakafoni

In the beginning of the 21st century Gothenburg, Sweden's Pelle Erikson got the idea that he would like to mix melodic jazz with modern technology. This would involve loop based song with strict rhythm and strong, easy melodies. Songs, based in traditional jazz, were recorded and after that overdubs, loops and samples were made in after recording editing, computer wise. Musicians got to put their special trade marks on the nearly finished recording. Out of these recordings KAKAFONI was founded. It's intriguing, special and loveable. The electro-jazz debut album from what could be Swedish Jazz's new superstars was released on January 30th.
