keys300AMETIST and Fasching present SWEDISH SOUL

Well, it's been bubbling under for a while but now I feel we can officially say soul is back, and we mean Scandinavian Soul. A reflection of this can be seen and heard in a series of forthcoming shows in Stockholm, Sweden promoted by DJ Ametist.

Ametist, perhaps better known for her popular Swedish hip-hop radio show on SR Metropol  93,8 has collected a number of the future generation of Swedish soul artists to perform at 'club KEYS', in collaboration with the venue Fasching. The first event kicks off on Thursday 30th August with Albin Gromer and Sabina Ddumba who are both bringing new rhythms and style to Scandinavian Soul.

Future shows include Aleks, Melo and Seinabo Sey

Tickets are available in advance. Click here for more information and check for more artist information.
