The commissioned work from Vossa Jazz 2022 by the Danish saxophonist Signe Emmeluth is ready for Nattjazz. A banshee is a mythical figure that heralds death, destruction and grief with a shrill scream and powerful voice. Together with a stellar team of musicians, Emmeluth has created an existential work in which powerful and clear voices are intertwined. She herself describes Banshee as a "fearless tale of presence and moments" where the Banshee figure is not necessarily thought of as something frightening and horrifying, but rather a way of speaking to the time that flies by. Live life while you have it. What will we experience while we exist? What are we leaving behind? Are we present?
