There are many Swedish jazz groups of high international class and they deserve several listeners and greater attention. This was the starting point and has become a guiding star for this tour project that started in 1994. Pulsslag was initiated by Faschings vänner (Friends of Fasching jazz club) and Svensk Jazz that has become the main arranger of the project.
In previous years, a number of, usually four, jazz groups have been nominated for the tour series. The selection has been made in cooperation between a handful of jazz clubs in the country.
The groups are then booked by jazz clubs around the country. Tour period is normally two weeks.
In 2016, Pulsslag consisted of a tour with Karin Krog who visited eight different cities in Sweden in September. The project was funded by the Norwegian Embassy.
During 2017, because of reduced funding we will not be able to arrange any Pulsslag tour. We are working to be able, next year already, to offer organizers and musicians the possibility to join Pulsslag.
