Mariah Hortans / M Sandberg Duo

Jazz vocalist Mariah Hortans and guitarist Mathias Sandberg have quickly created a niche on the Finnish music scene. Their music, which can be described as cool, intimate, traditional vocal jazz is performed completely live with just one voice and one guitar. The duo have performed extensively in Finland during the last couple of years and have done two successful tours in the USA.

Mariah Hortans is a well respected singer, composer and educator. Jazz guitarist Mathias Sandberg is one of the most in demand musicians in Ostrobothnia. He has studied at Manhattan School of Music in New York and Berklee College of Music in Boston, and has been teaching at all the major music schools, institutes and colleges in Ostrobothnia. Georg Riedel, LaGaylia Frazier, Manuel Dunkel, Pierre Swärd and Jukka Eskola are some of the artists he has worked with.

The Mariah Hortans / M Sandberg Duo album Christmas Jazz and Another Jazzy Christmas will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit in style. Classical Christmas compositions by Sibelius, Händel and Schubert are interwoven with traditional Christmas carols, songs and hymns. The songs are sung in English, Finnish and Swedish, and have been rearranged and harmonized with the jazzy harmonies, swinging rhythms and melodic improvisation the duo has become known for.

Mariah Hortans' and Mathias Sandberg's 2010 tour was the most extensive jazz tour in Finnish history.
This year the duo will embark on a 39-date Christmas Jazz tour from Saariselkä in the north to Helsinki in the south.
