Colour Your Life: European Jazz

September 2, Thailand Cultural Centre, and September 4, Bandara Resort and Spa, Koh Samui.
The sultry-voiced Malene Mortensen returns to Thailand after a stunning performance at the Hua Hin Jazz Festival last year for three events.

She will perform two concerts with the Kasper Villaume Trio in the second instalment of the "Colour Your Life: European Jazz" series in Bangkok and Koh Samui as well as hold a jazz workshop on September 1.

Making a name for herself at 19 when she won the Danish Eurovision contest, the Scandinavian vocalist went on to master a style of rich jazzy melodies and a fine tuned ear for innovation. She was awarded the Django D'or Prize for Best Young Jazz Musician of the Year in 2005. The Kasper Villaume trio, which won the Danish Grammy Award for Best CD in 2005 bring with them a classy, internationally renowned style bound to balance brilliantly with Malene's honeyed voice.

Tickets range from Bt3,000 (includes a special edition European jazz CD) to Bt1,000 (special student discount tickets for Bt300) and are available from Thaiticketmajor.
