Mira Thiruchelvam - perhaps best known to many from 9 Degrees North and more recently as a musician, composer and arranger with and for Gutu Abera, where she won Best African Jazz of the Year for the composition "Demi". She has her traditional background from Sri Lanka, but was born and raised in Bergen and along the way has become a world-class flute player. Mira combines traditional music from Sri Lanka with an ear for the rest of the world in a fearless and successful way. Around her are 10 musicians who, each in their own way, bring a unique voice into the project from a strong, varied, cross-genre and innovative musical environment.
