Mika Akim marks the release of her debut album with a concert at ALICE. A fragile and healing journey through landscapes of the body with a mix of chamber folk, pop, improv and americana. Brazilian guitarist Raphael Gimenes opens the evening.
Mika Akim releases her debut album “Till kroppen” on October 23, 2020 on Malmö-based prog label Krumelur Records. The main character is Mika Persdotter, who twists and turns both sounds and stories from her own life when she writes music. The debut album with the title and theme Till kroppen (To the body) basically consists of healing songs, dedicated to her own body and the story it carries. We hear texts in both Swedish and English with love for the body through different perspectives. Mika has recorded everything herself and brought with her the musicians Tove Bagge and Ossian Ward into the music which is a unique mixture of folk music, pop, improvisation and americana.
Tove Bagge and Ossian Ward also join Mika Persdotter on stage for the release show which also features Adam Grauman on double bass.
Mika Persdotter – voice, viola d’amore, ngoni
