Congrats, Mira Thiruchelvam!

Big congratulations to our Borealis 2023 artist Mira Thiruchelvam who together with Gutu Abera won the Best African Jazz of the Year award with their song ‘Deemi’!

In collaboration with Gutu, Mira is behind the composition, melody and production, and also plays the bamboo flute, cajon drum and congas. For Borealis 2023, she will perform a new commissioned work for Musikk for sjøbading at the heated outdoor pool Nordnes Sjøbad. The piece explores a more elongated format, drawing on the complex rhythms and harmonic structures of Tamil musical tradition.
