Magdalena is currently working on her Solo Debut Album "Sade" with Producer Marcus Berg (also known from the duo Minuk), who has worked with Nicola Cruz, ElBuho, Mirabai Ceba, Ajeet and many more.
First of all I want to give thanks and gratitude to many of you were there with me all along my musical journey that started 2019. As I spent the last 4 years of my life coming out with music, sharing and creating and weaving with my voice in forests, ceremonies, festivals and gathering you were there, and you have been inspiring me and believing in me regardless of my own beliefs.
During these years I have slowly been weaving my souls whispers into songs. Notes, chords, lyrics. I am exited and happy to have this opportunity to be able to share this music to all of you, stepping into my first Solo Debut Album journey.
The Album is called "Sade" that means "the rain" in finnish, but is also the ancestral name of my Mother´s family. This Album is a dream of mine to make, and exploration between human sound, nature, identity and story-telling. A prayer for health and harmony in our relating with Nature.
Album is inspired by the sound of traditional folk songs and lullabies, trance-state inducing ritualistic flow and transformational journey to the heart, using natures soundscapes intwined with experimental human voice and story-telling arch.
We are currently funding the Album through applying for music grants, If you wish to support and see this music created you can support the funding of the Album through Mesenaatti. That would help immensely the work, since I am not signed under any label and am funding the Album independently.
Our goal is to raise 10 000- 14800e, to produce, mix, master the music, pay the musician´s and finnish the recordings in Colombia. If you wish to part of the Album, Mesenaatti begins 13.3.2023!
Down below you can read on the incredible producer and musician´s who are on board!
Sade tarkoittaa suomeksi "sadetta", mutta on myös suvussamme kulkenut nimi. Albumi on saanut inspiraationsa perinteisten kansanlaulujen ja kehtolaulujen soundista, transsitilaa herättävästä rituaalisesta virtauksesta ja transformaatiomatkasta sydämeen, käyttäen äänimaisemia esivanhempien luonnonmaisemista.
