Miriam Aida

Folkets hus Skelleftehamn, Skellefteå

Warm swinging interpretations of David Bowie from the latest album Loving the Alien.

"It is David Bowie's courage to challenge social norms, to go beyond the given framework, that inspires us. He urges us not to compromise ourselves and to follow the path of our hearts and stand for who we are. With this closest to our hearts, we have challenged ourselves to make his songs ours. ”, Says Miriam Aïda about the process around the record.

With influences of Afro-Brazilian rhythms, jazz, reggae, and a dose of Swedish melancholy in front of Miriam Aida and her band songs taken from parts of David Bowie's career.

The group, which consists of Mats Andersson on 7-string acoustic guitar and percussionists Ola Bothzén and Finn Björnulfson, have during their 12 years together formed a magnetic sound and they have already toured in both Sweden, Denmark and Finland with the new album.

Miriam has its roots in Sweden and Morocco and she always aims to create a community with her audience that extends beyond nationality, culture, language, color, gender, and religion.
We have been able to see her in SVT's Allsång på Skansen and Luciafirande, As a columnist (LIRA, Ystad Allehanda, P2 Jazzradion), host and producer for Swedish Radio P2.
