Experimental Duo Zomes Headline BAR in New Haven Tonight, April 17
When singer Hanna Olivegren volunteered last spring at the New Perspectives Festival for creative music in Vasteras, Sweden, she wasn't expecting to fall into an opportunity to begin collaborating with musician Asa Osborne of Zomes, and formerly of Lungfish. Olivegren, who has a background in jazz and improvisational vocals and has studied at numerous music schools in Sweden, improvised some vocal melodies over one of Osborne's instrumental performances during the festival. She told Osborne and the two liked the idea so much that he invited her to perform with him at another place in Sweden, and later at a show in New York City. The rest, as they say, is history.
