Sara Aldén is an up and rising vocalist on the Swedish jazz scene based in Gothenburg. With integrity and curiosity Sara explores the spaces existing within the jazz context and has a intimacy in her way of creating music, inviting the listener to a small place of stillness.

In contrast stands the rawness and the greatness to her voice where it echoes into large halls and great landscapes.

 

With her musical roots anchored in years as a big band singer and interpreting standard jazz, Sara is now ready to take on her own versions of the music and making it her own. 

 

Sara has received the Fredrika Bremer scholarship from The Royal Swedish Academy of Music two times.
