awos! Actually we do have quite a vibrant swedish jazz music scene. Bo Kaspers Orkester have been for many years sort of swedish jazz pioneers. Lately their music turned more contemporary. I will try my best to do a post on tha. i have been meaning to do so a while now but as you can see, there are one billion other ideas in my head I wanna post about too :)

Zee, yeah he is the big guy lol I met him once when I was very young. His parents were the Pakistani ambassadors to Sweden.

Language is indeed part of ones heritage but it can also broaden your identity. Doesn't have to be a language that is historically part of your identity. I learnt arabic but theres no arab blood running through my veins lol
