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, and opened at the Polar Music Prize to honor jazz great Wayne Shorter. She also tours with Snarky Puppy and has performed with Ghost Note and Paris_Monster.
