Freja Skumslot - (Go to the concert)

Freja Skumslot: 

Accompanied by a ramschackle red accordion, I sing to evoke forgotten & unplaceable sensations,

I sing from my entrails to go to strange lands of strong colours & forgotten tales.

With me are seaman's chords & song treasures: Simple interpretations of Mexican, Greek, Polish & Bulgarian folklore,

La Nueva Canción Latínoamericana, rock'n'roll ballads & own compositions. I sing of desire & death, memory,  confusion, fear, love & ghosts.

It is a great honour for me to be a part of Singing Our Place Festival. For the occasion,

I will share the first sprouts of the piece Foam on the Ocean. Departing from the tale of the Little Mermaid,

I explore the themes of women's desire, of longing, of legs, of losing one's voice,

of being a stranger & of hopes of other lands, lives & afterlives. Of hybrid species, the human-fish.

Of the ocean as bearer of deep secrets, a witness to our, the humans', unfathomable destruction of Earth,

the ocean where life may have begun & may end. Let's take a look at the spinning wheel!
