Line up 2018: Ale Moller
by Miriam Rossius
Talking about Ale Moller the label „world musician“ offers a number of literal meanings: He is a man of the world, a world traveler and there is obviously no musical culture he is not interested in. In Scandinavia he is the leading figure for folk-jazz and has dived into Swedish folk for many years, but at the same time he has worked with artists from Greece, Mexico, Senegal, India and many other countries. He actually was a jazz trumpeter before he met the bouzouki and got to play with the famous Mikis Theodorakis. By now Ale Moller is considered an exceptional protagonist of the mandola, but also masters accordion, harp, harmonica, and different flutes.
