The sound of Europes destiny.
At the centre of the project ‘Iboja’s Songs’ sings
99-year-old Iboja Wandall-Holm.who unfolds her unrivalled inventory of childhood memories and unique treasures of songs. Iboja has collected these and brought them from her childhood in Eastern Europe. She later translated them into Danish.
The album appears as a musical encounter. An encounter where Iboja’s memories and songs are put in a new light by danish musician
Mikkel Hess and other members of the band Hess Is More, in collaboration with co-producer Kenneth Bager.
Even at her advanced age, Iboja sings with a
beautiful timbre that miraculously encapsulates intimacy and the sense of travelling through history.
Iboja has had a career as a journalist and writer. One therefore immediately senses her storytelling abilities both as a singer, but especially also as a writer. Iboja is in more than one sense
the voice of the century. The singles ‘Jeg Er Blevet Gammel’ and ‘Solen
Går Ned Over Land’ were the first two releases from this project’s musical journey. They laid the groundwork for the release of ‘Iboja’s
Songs’ to flourish.
