Anna Lundqvist Lisboa Cinco
Energetic, sprawling and personal contemporary vocal jazz in interplay between Sweden and Portugal
Jazz singer Anna Lundqvist is the band leader and composer for the Lisbon-based quintet Anna Lundqvist Lisboa Cinco. Together with Anna, the quintet is a band that contains some of the most interesting, innovative and progressive musicians from the Portuguese jazz scene.
The music is very energetic with a strong interplay and improvisation in focus, as always in Anna's musical context. The music is modern jazz that hovers between the American traditions and the European jazz sound with influences from everything between rock and Swedish hymns.
The band was formed just before the pandemic, but restarted in January 2022 with a new focus, newly written music and with the desire to become a strong musical unit. In September 2023, their debut album 'Sou Anna' will be released in Swedish Prophone records/NAXOS. The album was recorded and mixed in Portugal and is produced by Anna Lundqvist and Joel Silva.
