WELCOME / Välkommen

My name is Love Kjellsson.
I’m a musician and composer from Albo härad.

Most of my work is managed by: ENTmanagement

Playlist with music published on Spotify: Love Kjellsson’s recording

Creating music is a way for me to communicate and connect.

I base my research and compositions upon traditions but I search in the ‘now’ to express what is needed. It’s a secular sacred music, contemporary but traditional. Minimalist but ambitious in my struggle to approach the sacred, the sublime.

Longing, searching, remembering something that never existed. A utopia of authenticity.

With my voice, violin, effect-pedal-board and my feet I improvise my way through old sacred hymns, fragments of poetry and melodies that are communicated over the ages.

I grew up playing the traditional music but when getting older I wondered what happened to the more introvert parts of my musical heritage. I want to develop the musical complexity of my spoken dialect and continue searching for qualities within the improvised, never repeatable music.

I have a duo with Sami-singer Johanna Sevä: Moaivi. Another band is Barnet

I’m also working with contemporary circus. One of the projects is a forest performance merging contemporary circus with traditional music, it’s called Knekke Greine. Another collaboration with circus artists is the stage performance Plast. A music performance intermingled with a poetical circus performance.
