On “Traces Of You” Kristin collaborates closely with her long-term guitarist Olav Torget, a musician who has been very important in enriching her musical landscape. The album also introduces a new musical encounter with the Gambian griot Suntou Susso.
With assured melodic flair and poetic words, guitars, West African kora, konting and vocals are woven creatively into a gorgeous, groovy and meditative vibration. The music carries traces of West African music, lullabyes and contemplative, Nordic jazz. The songs are like delicate sensations: Of life’s imprints, presence and love’s transformations.
“Traces Of You” has its origin in songs from Kristin’s commissioned work for Global Oslo Music in 2016. Her new music has already received an overwhelming response, and has opened new terrain in her multifaceted musical universe.
“Traces Of You” is the first release from the new established publishing service Global Sonics, specializing in new creative collaborations between artists from all over the world.
