Stretching across three continents and cultures (Thailand, Sweden and America), Sirintip’s remarkable debut album Tribus — produced by three-time Grammy winner Michael League of Snarky Puppy — is a gathering of different moments from the last four years of the singer/composer’s life. It’s an exciting, eclectic work that touches on pop, R&B, electronic and jazz, while creating a sound uniquely its own.
Tribus embraces a jazz heritage but sounds decidedly modern — you could easily put these songs on a playlist between Thundercat, Kimbra and Little Dragon. “The idea behind the album is to bridge the gap between pop and jazz by combining singable melodies with grooves, jazz harmonies and electronics,” says the singer. “The music might sound simple when you listen to it at first, but if you dig deeper, you´ll find the hidden depth and complexity.”
Outside of her own album, Sirintip has recorded with Snarky Puppy’s Bill Laurance, competed
in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, performed with Benny Andersson from ABBA during a fundraiser held at the Guggenheim, opened at the Polar Music Prize to honor jazz great Wayne Shorter, performed for the King of Sweden at the Wallenberg 100th anniversary, honored the king of Thailand at the National Theatre in Bangkok, and twice performed and composed musical interpretations of the Nobel Prize nominations at the Nobel Museum in Sweden.
