INVENTIVE DUO CONNECT NORWAY AND THE CARIBBEAN
FOR THIS 2020 RELEASE
Mino Cinélu / Nils Petter Molvær
Splicing its title from the west Norwegian island of Sula and a popular synonym for the Caribbean island of Martinique, the new, sonically colourful, teemingly inventive 2020 album is an intertwining of the artists’ far-flung roots, filled with wide-open spaces, jazz/improv surprises and African rhythmic inspirations, all sewn into the tapestry of this entrancing session.

Sit in a café almost anywhere in the world, and more likely than not a record or song will be playing that Mino Cinélu performed on. Sit with Mino in a café or club or bar, also almost anywhere in the world, and you’ll hear about that night’s show or what he’s thinking about for a tour or production later that month. Sit anywhere with someone who knows Mino, and you’ll hear about what a wonderful person he is.
The world lost a giant with Cicely Tyson’s passing – an empress of cool and confidence.
Mino Cinelu played with Miles and spent time with Cicely as they toured.
