Mattias Nilsson – piano
Jimmi Roger Pedersen – bass
MATTIAS NILSSON, has with more than a thousand concerts in 32 countries around the world established himself as one of Sweden’s most personal pianists with his very own voice. Nilsson incorporates the Nordic Vemod, with influences from classical, folk and jazz music. Through his improvisations and a very warm and personal approach, this becomes a unique expression and a musical landscape with completely new shades of color. It’s not for no reason they call him the Swede with the warm Scandinavian touch.
