Kersti Billström, vocals

 

She was more or less completely unexperienced concerning traditional jazz in general and New Orleans jazz-singing in particular, when she joined Barfota Jazzmen more than a decade ago. But she is a very versatile singer in many contexts; from churches and choirs to dance- and popbands. She has been working hard to try to learn this very special style of singing and she has constantly improved through the years.
