Bazar Blå - three master musicians from Sweden. Since more than twenty years they have constantly redefined their own space in the music scene. Now Bazar Blå is on the road again, with a new repertoire and freshly released album in their luggage.
"Malmö 1999" is a unique live recording from a truly memorable concert in 1999. Featuring never before released live versions of some of their most defining tunes. In times of short-lived musical trends, Bazar Blå decided to take the time to be inspired by their own roots again.
The music of Bazar Blå captivates by sounding as originally Swedish as it is globally irresistible. Melodies, harmonies and rhythms move freely between nyckelharpa, bass guitar, bass mandola and percussion. The grooves develop from tiny bells to huge, enchanting structures and unfold a distinctive dynamic bursting with playful virtuosity.
In 2016 they celebrated their 20th anniversary as a trio. Thus their music is also a tribute to the unique, collective power of three strong personalities who have been creating new music together for a long time.
"When we started thinking of a new release after our 2016 jubilee release “Twenty”, we realised that we all had really fond memories of some of our older songs. So we decided to browse through the archives and search for special recordings. It wasn't long before we found a real treasure. A live recording of our concert in Malmö in 1999! After some technical post-processing - 21 years is a long time in the development of music recordings! - we proudly present the seventh album of Bazar Blå!”
