‘Loredana’ is a new project by the award winning vocalist Emilia Mårtensson featuring guitarist Luca Boscagin, percussionist Adriano Adewale, trumpeter Fulvio Sigurta and bassist Sam Lasserson. ‘Loredana’ explores the adversity and the wilderness of the term mother, celebrating the infinite observations about the ‘mother – child relationship’, and how this can shape us throughout our lives. Initially inspired through four specific questions that Emilia asked her audience about their relationship to their mothers, her boundary pushing and original music crosses borders between Scandinavian folk, jazz and art.pop. Known as one of London’s most gifted vocalists, Emilia’s highly anticipated next album is due for release in March 2019 on Babel Label (UK).
There is still time to take part of the creative process of this album.
Your answers will be used as inspiration with the aim for me to write nine new songs.
It could be a name, a word, a specific story or a feeling that could spark something and hopefully turn in to a song.
Please don’t feel like you have to linger on these questions for too long.
Both short and long answers are welcome. Whatever comes to you, go with that.
I am aware that these questions are very personal and I will of course be very respectful of this.
1. DESCRIBE YOUR MOTHER WITH ONE WORD.
2. WHAT IS THE MAIN THING YOU FEEL YOUR MOTHER HAS TAUGHT YOU/BEST ADVICE SHE HAS GIVEN YOU?
3. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU FEEL YOU REGRET IN TERMS OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR MOTHER?
4. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC MEMORY OF YOU AND YOUR MOTHER OR A STORY ABOUT YOUR MOTHER YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?
Please email your answers to [email protected]
Thank you so much!
Lots of love/Emilia
