Finally the third album!

<p><em><strong>(*Svensk text i slutet av sidan)</strong></em></p> <p><br /> <strong>This fundraiser will be used to finance the following projects:</strong></p> <p><strong>- Finalizing Eskelina&rsquo;s third album</strong></p> <p><strong>- A round trip to Sweden to record Eskelinas vocals and backing vocals by her friends and colleagues Anna Alerstedt and Marie Nilsson.</strong></p> <p><strong>- To film this trip and recording process, making a documentary and a music video</strong></p> <p><strong>- Photography for the illustration of album launch</strong><br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662180/42472068_10156563706751760_540175150599897088_n-1588238493.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>It is now almost 14 years to the day when I left Sweden to move to France.</strong></p> <p>My journey there has gone from making a living as a street musician in the south west, by way of fantastic encounters, aquaintances and experiences to having performed on venues all over France, and later on Quebec, Germany, Hungary, Norway and Switzerland.</p> <p><br /> <img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/660650/1FE23192-2BA4-4001-854A-3E32951AE824-1587549931.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>In 2012&nbsp;I and four amazing colleagues and musicians founded a small record company, by which we have released our two previous albums. As of now, I am finalizing my third album in French.&nbsp;As was the case in the first two, Florent Vintrigner is the main lyricist, Nans Vincent has contributed with two songs, and the music is composed in part by Christophe Bastien, and in part by me.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662173/28577608_10156073510691760_7217920002915650156_n-1588238118.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>This time, our goal is to record parts of the album in Sweden.</p> <p>For 8 years I have had the pleasure of working with la chanson francaise. Learning how to sing in french and to become one of the perfomers who keep this tradition going, has been one of my greatest adventures and a great pride. Now I feel it is time to take on the challenge to invite a part of my own swedish culture into &quot;La chanson francaise&quot;.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/662177/37311682_10156401345846760_3583413110519627776_o-1588238289.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I have asked my two friends of more than 20 years, Anna Alerstedt and Marie Nilsson to contribute with their amazing voices, and they have accepted. When not studying to become a nurse, Anna Alerstedt is an acomplished lyricist to performers such as Viktoria Tolstoy. And when not working as a music teacher, Marie Nilsson&nbsp;is on tour as a performer herself, recently having released her third solo album.&nbsp;</p> <p>We have spent many of our young and not-so-young years singing together, and few things feel more natural and inspiring than having these two along for the ride!</p> <div class="k-ResponsiveIframeContainer"><iframe allow="autoplay;
