Swedish flutist Elsa Nilsson's music is profoundly playful and widely influenced. She believes the beauty of music is how it transcends cultural boundaries, and her compositions highlight this by mixing cultural elements.

Pianist Jon Cowherd is best known for his long-running partnership with drummer/bandleader Brian Blade, with whom he co-founded the Brian Blade Fellowship. The Fellowship's highly acclaimed albums showcase Cowherd's stellar keyboard work and compositional skills.

Nilsson and Cowherd weave a rich musical tapestry with inspiration from both of their diverse backgrounds.
