BROR GUNNAR JANSSON

Tourné le 10 Août 2016 • Nostalgicum, Göteborg
This is an excellent music discovery, Bror Gunnar Jansson played lots of time in France and I wanted to discover his music. Folk blues, which in solo is very impressive and really deserves to be known.

I had the chance to meet him in Göteborg where he lives, and we were able to do this session in the very original museum Nostalgicum, that relates the lifestyle in Sweden in the 50's-60's.

From the first notes and raw rhythms, I discover the extent of his talent, and this scratched voice with impressive power.
Bror Gunnar Jansson plays 2 acoustic songs, an instimist moment, powerful and full of emotion at the same time.
