Susanna Lindeborg's Mwendo Dawa
Susanna Lindeborg's Mwendo Dawa is a Swedish quartet formed by Susanna Lindeborg, piano and keyboard together with Ove Johansson, tenorsax and EWI. Jimmi Roger Pedersen, bass, from Denmark, and David Sundby, drums, from Norway, are the other two members of the group.
The name "Mwendo Dawa" is Swahili and means "the way to a special goal", which is a very suitable name, because Mwendo Dawa has always been in the forefront seeking means of new expression.
Mwendo Dawa has had some international success since the breakthrough at the Montreux Jazzfestival. Mwendo Dawa has performed in 20 countries in Europe and North- and Southamerica doing festivalappearances and radio and TV performances. The last few years Mwendo Dawa has now and then performed in USA and Canada and also recorded a couple of records in New York.
