Susanna Lindeborg’s Mwendo Dawa
A Taste of Four Free Minds
LJ Records

Since the late ’70s, keyboard innovator Susanna Lindeborg and tenor saxophonist/EWI player Ove Johansson have presented Sweden’s answer to Weather Report with their daring electro-acoustic quartet Mwendo Dawa. Here they step further into the avant-garde realm than ever before with Lindeborg generating eerie soundscapes on her laptop and playing piano alongside Johansson, upright bassist Jimmi Roger Pedersen from Denmark and the remarkably intuitive drummer David Sundby from Norway. Three lengthy and purely improvisational tracks, closer in spirit to Circle than Weather Report, are interspersed by brief thematic interludes.
