"Three years ago Laura Schuler felt the desire of moving to Scandinavia. For two years, looking for her own musical language, she went on a quest in the vast emptiness of the northern lands, which resulted in compositions for her first CD with Kronikor. The manifold impressions from those years have now been unified in the music of this quintet. With immense curiosity and ingeniousness, the bandleader takes musical elements from various traditions and puts them together in new variations. Apart from presenting carefully structured compositions, the main point of the album is to give room to spontaneity and the magic of the moment. This music allows every single musician of the band to contribute his or her very particular sound."

In February 2018 Kronikor will release its first album on QFTF and in October be on pre-release tour!
