GIG: SILVANA IMAM
“I believe we are all gods. I’m not a religious person, in that sense. But I believe we are all gods of our own destiny, we are all limitless creators, we created this earth. And this is what I want people to feel, that they are empowered and in control, because I’ve also felt helpless, like when growing up, ‘un-powered’. So I want to give the power to the people. I’m not talking about political power here, but more your actions, and the way you treat other people, everything is in you. The planet consists of 80-95% water, the body consists of the exact same amount. We are the universe, we all have it in us. So this is my core, these ‘laws of nature’ as I call them, this is my core. So it’s always been very close to me. Yes, I’m talking about myself to an extent, Helig Moder is my album title, but I’m also talking about Mother Earth, it has a bigger meaning”. So said Silvana when we spoke to her a couple of weeks ago. Her new album Helig Moder is out now, and she brings it to Stockholm this weekend, with a monster show at Annexet on Friday.
