Recently released as a full length album, Loving The Alien is a commemorate to David Bowie as Miriam and her band brings a new perspective on Bowie’s music with their lovely mix of samba, afro-Brazilian rhythms, reggae and jazz. Along with their own Swedish musical background, on stage they create a unique and magnetic vibe with a strong identity and sound.
Aïda is one of Sweden's most popular jazz singers. She has toured internationally, performing at the Blue Note in Tokyo, in London, Paris, Istanbul, Moscow, Helsinki, Oslo, Palermo, Berlin and across Sweden.
Aïda's music is influenced by many musical traditions, including Latin American, and she attained success with a Brazilian music-inspired album Meu Brasil. She performs with her partner, saxophonist Fredrik Kronkvist, and has since her 2002 debut released five albums with Kronkvist and the Jan Lundgren Trio.
