Anna Högberg,
by Micke Keysendal

with her radical and experimental saxophone playing, is active in a number of constellations and as a soloist on the Swedish and European jazz/ improv scenes. She is currently working with bands such as her free jazz sextett Anna Högberg Attack, the  punk/ jazz trio Doglife and off course the giant Fire! Orchestra. She has also appeared as a guest in Mats Gustafssons The Thing and NU Ensemble and is constantly exploring new collaborations working in the field of improvised music.

”Her tone being able to cut landscapes open, to melt your brain as we know it.”
- Mats Gustafsson

Susana Santos Silva
by_Christer Männikus

 is a trumpeter, improviser and composer from Porto, Portugal. In the last years she has been considered by the international press as one of the strongest emerging voices in contemporary jazz and improvised music.
With a singular approach/voice that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of influences, from classical and contemporary music to jazz and textural sound art, she is interested in stretching the boundaries of the instrument and in exploring new ways of expression within music.
She leads her projects Impermanence and Life and Other Transient Storms (with Lotte Anker, Sten Sandell, Jon Fält and Torbjörn Zetterberg), and co-leads duos with Zetterberg (also in trio with Hampus Lindwall), Kaja Draksler, Jorge Queijo, Alexandra Nilsson, Hearth (with Mette Rasmussen, Ada Rave and Kaja Draksler) and a quartet with Christine Wodrascka, Christian Meaas Svendsen and Håkon Berre. She is also part of the LAMA trio, Torbjörn Zetterberg's Och Den Stora Frågan and Coreto.
She played, among many others and besides her working bands, with Fred Frith, Chris Cutler, Craig Taborn, Thomas Morgan, Kris Davis, Mat Maneri, Ingrid Laubrock, Joe Morris, Mats Gustafsson, Per-Åker Holmlander, Okkyung Lee, Christof Kurzmann, Tobias Delius, Achim Kaufmann, Frank Gratkowski, Christian Lillinger, Kresten Osgood.

She has been performing and recording in Portugal, Spain, France, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Romenia, Slovenia, Serbia, Croacia, Kosovo, Italy, Greece, Egipt, Morocco, Ireland, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, USA, Uruguay, Argentina, Indonesia and UAE.
“Susana Santos Silva is a extremely busy global musician who leads and co-leads various groups of different sizes, but always with her confident, nearly free approach as the focus. Her sound is liquid yet fiery, resonant, strong and flexible and her sharp command of the instrument is typically expressed in creative improvising situations where an ability both to blow torrents of sound and compose compact melodic statements - all entirely in the moment - make her a valuable asset in her many recording and performance roles.”
Ken Micallef, NYC Jazz Record
