EFG London Jazz Festival is proud to present a showcase of two of the most exciting jazz groups to emerge from Sweden in recent years, with thanks to the kind support of the Embassy of Sweden in London.
Fartyg 6 is a sextet from Gothenburg, performing odd mesmerizing art jazz where metrical melodies meet improvisation, poetry and tenderness in original compositions. The group was formed in 2014 on initiative by Matilda Andersson together with Daniel Gahrton; both composers of the music. The group have since then released two albums (Den första 2016, Allt Faller 2018) at PACAYA records and toured actively in Sweden and abroad.
