Anna Kruse "Ever lasting Edith"

”Ever lasting Edith”

100 years old lyrics from the poet Edith Södergran( 1892-1923) steams of passion, naturebeauty and a bittersweet humor. The music composed by Anna Kruse is crunchy, sensible and swinging like a boiling ocean.

The poems of Edith Södergran express a sentiment of desolation but not entirely without humor and playfulness. Anna Kruse has compiled a set of poems that in an extraordinary musical way balances the melancholy of the lyrics. Even in the darkest verses Anna approaches the lyrics in a positive sometimes dreamlike way through her music.

The Swedish actor Stina Ekblad says: "Edith Södergrans poesi och Anna Kruses musik och röst möter varandra, som systrar från varsin tid. De går sida vid sida, klangfullt, drömskt, vilt och vemodigt."

Anna says:

"I love to express this beautiful poems and to let people know about Edith Södergrans life and history. She was an extraordinary woman and her poems are timeless. Soloperformance or with a full band is all god ;-) You can expect not so commen instruments as saw, noseflute and banjo"

Anna has been a solist with DR Bigband and has been singing with most of the great musicians ind Scandinavia.
