In the world of music, Ale Möller is a much travelled man. With an array of instruments he has wandered far and wide, in space and time. In the ‘sixties and ‘seventies, guitar in hand, he sang his way through Europe, strengthening the common bonds of youth across the frontiers. With his trumpet he explored the nightlife sounds of New Orleans, the bebop dives of downtown Manhattan. And then with his treasured bouzouki, among the mountains of Greece, he came to the realization that he must seek his roots, his identity, in the traditions of his native land.
All these impressions, together with his own quest for a traditional spelman’s sound, filled Ale’s musical crucible, to be cast in the form of this first solo record of his very special brand of folk music. This music is so Swedish yet reflects the broad musical experience of his travels.
